Diamond Diaries

Welcome to Wedding Wednesdays! Our regular host, Mary over at Little Bit of Class Little Bit of Sass, just got married this weekend and is just a TAD busy on her honeymoon right now. You get to skip out on the Wedding Wednesday in the blogosphere when you’re busy actually getting married. She’ll be back next week, and I’m super excited to see pictures of her big day! So welcome to A Diamond with Sapphires. Mary couldn’t go wrong handing the reins over to a blog named after an engagement ring, right? Speaking of engagement rings….

A Diamond with Sapphires

We all love a good engagement story. What’s the first thing we all do when we look at a couple’s wedding website? We go click on the “Our Story” page, even if we’ve already heard the story before! Do you ever actually stumble across a blog post titled something along the lines of “The Proposal” and not click the link? No! Why? Because it’s bound to be a happy story that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Maybe it will even make you chuckle a bit. Whatever is going wrong in your life, a good proposal will make you feel better.

So today, let’s talk proposals. Over at Diamond Diaries you can get your fill of amazing proposals stories. It’s a site for every girl with a ring to share their story, no matter how old or new! Plus, there are pictures galore so you can ogle and drool over some sparkly diamonds (and the occasional sapphire . Let’s face it, what single girl doesn’t like looking at rings, reading about proposals, and dreaming of the day she will be able to share her story with the world?

You can check out my proposal story on Diamond Diaries here. Our story is certainly unique, and my parents found it pretty humorous. There are some other pretty great stories over at Diamond Diaries. There’s a mid-flight proposal, an engagement ring that got lost in a dish or risotto, and a proposal at the top of a mountain that was captured by a professional photographer. That’s my teaser, now go check it out for yourself. If you have your own story, share it on the site then post the link in the comments section of this post so I can go check it out!

So link up your Wedding Wednesday post below. Any wedding-related post will work, old or new. I’ll definitely be checking out all of your posts. I’m off at a job interview this morning, but I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone has to say when I get back home later today!

Until later, Ashlen
