Celebrating Ten Years Engaged with Big Little Gifts

This month marks a very special celebration in our house – our tenth year engagement anniversary. On Christmas Day ten years ago – during a horrible snowstorm Eric proposed. I’ve partnered with The Shane Co. to share how we will be remembering all of the milestones we’ve gone through as a couple since we’ve been together.

Eric and I have been together since high school – yes, you heard that right. You don’t hear about high school sweethearts very often anymore. We’ve been through so many incredible moments together but this one in particular feels extra special since it marks the moment we knew we would be spending forever together.

Every Christmas, Eric gives me a gift meant for our anniversary. He chooses a different restaurant each time for us to celebrate our time together. This year – being our tenth anniversary – he added a beautiful Rose Gold Pavé-Set Diamond Wedding Band and Freshwater Pearl and Diamond Earrings to the mix. And always wanting to surprise me, he decided to also surprise me by hanging the ring directly on the tree. He then texted me to find a surprise on the tree. When I found it, the tag told me to dress warmly for a ride on his scooter for dinner.


Finding a way to bring a sense of wonder into a marriage is always a good thing. And what person wouldn’t want a lovely piece of jewelry for a gift? I found so many pieces at The Shane Co. that would add a sense of wonder for everyone.

There is something so enduring about a gift of jewelry that can’t be beat! So while I love to think about our past together, I also love being right here in the present with my kind, loving, and funny husband!
