My fiancé Jarret knows that I've never liked public proposals. While some would love to be asked in front of people in a restaurant, I have always thought it would be better if it was just the two of us. A few weeks before Christmas, we had put up our tree. I was disappointed that we didn't have a tree topper yet and thought it would be a good idea to look for one after the holidays. However, one random Wednesday night, I came home to a dark apartment with only our tree lit. Jarret said he had found something perfect for the top of our tree. Sitting on top of the tree was a gorgeous ring. While I tell this part of the story, I will always keep what he said between the two of us, as I believe it was always meant to be a private and perfect moment only for us. A few weeks later, my sister gave us a handmade star for our tree, which will forever remind me of our engagement day.
