Last week, Tyson proposed to me. It was simple and sweet. He said, among other things, that “I think it will be fun.” My heart jumped all around. And I agreed. “So we’re engaged!” He said. “Yes,” I said.

My ring features a black diamond — rose cut. It’s unexpected and perfect for me. The stone changes colors in the light — from gray to silvery to dark black. I’ve been having trouble staying focused on anything else.

We celebrated in Las Vegas on the day we chose the ring.

Last week, we celebrated in Utah on the Fourth of July — the day we told his mother, and mine. Fireworks, indeed.

We’re SO happy.
