Do you think Bing Crosby rolls over in his grave every time “Silver Bells” gets piped over a store’s loudspeaker in September?

When we got to Goodman’s Jewelers, she spent a lot of time searching out the diamond style, from a Cordova to Whitehouse Brothers to something from the Naledi Collection. They were all fantastic diamonds and she was certain there was a unique engagement ring for her. She offered some ideas and, at some point, without her around, I went back to Goodman’s and they helped me wow the woman of my dreams! Goodman’s made her ring something that is so very special, taking several of her ideas, creating a unique ring that I felt was exactly what she wanted. What they created was amazing…something I had never seen.
But, the tougher part would be when to give it to her!
Christmas was right around the corner. I knew her. I knew she would expect it Christmas morning. We had opened all the presents and turned to the stockings where she smirked, thinking the ring was inside hers. But, it wasn’t. I left a brand new iPod Shuffle in there. I could see the disappointment in her eyes until she looked at my eyes and then my hands and saw the ring there.
