    I am officially promised to my best friend!

    Promise Ring

    For our 1.5 year anniversary my boyfriend gave me a diamond promise ring to symbolize his love for me and that no other girl matters but me. I love him. We've been through tough times and for him to put it on my finger made me have more trust in him :]
