My boyfriend Neil was coming down to Florida on Christmas Day to spend the rest of Christmas and my birthday with my family. When he got off the plane, he had tied the ring to our dog's collar. Of course, because I wasn't expecting an engagement for at least another six months, I didn't even notice the ring dangling on the collar, even when I was practically staring right at it. It wasn't until Neil finally pointed it out to me that I realized what was happening. For the first time in my 22 years on Earth, I was absolutely speechless. My parents even recorded the whole thing on video!
