Hey Dolls & Gents,
I’m so happy to tell you that my wonderful beau and I took a vacation to Colombia for his birthday and guess who surprised me with a #cabochon cut #emerald and six brilliant emeralds on the side??? Yes!!!! Alex did and I happily accepted since I couldn’t see living my life to the end without the man of my dreams. I’m such a lucky woman to be able to have a wonderful family especially my daughter who is a gem and makes me proud, a fabulous career that I absolutely love-my clients are the best and makes my job feel like its a full day of fun and my relationships with true friends whom are also fabulous and crazy- that’s why I love them- is good and then there’s my rock & my King who stands by me and support my ideas and my emotions…Alex.
As many of you have gotten to know him, you already know I’m the live fire cracker and he is the calm one. We balance one another and I’m sure he has fun living out zany ideas through me. He’s kind and patient and is always a positive spirit who can see the good in any situation. Do you understand why I’m so grateful to have him in my life? Alex is also very private so I’ll keep my date and what he said when he proposed between us and of course the family can know the date.
Those are just a few of the reasons why I’ve agreed to be his wife-eventually-and share the rest of my life with “the one.” I’m so lucky and happy, I’m smiling as I type!
I’d like to share with you guys some personal photos of our jet-setting vacation. I recommend Cartagena, Colombia to everyone because not only is it a beautiful city but the hospitality from the locals that we received was incredible. So enjoy the photos and feel free to give me your feedback. I’d love to hear from you all and please note that the photos that I’m posting we’re from a cell phone so they might not be to your liking but I love them! Besos…xoxo

The famous #Carriage Ride in which I was offered my proposal from Alex! #Bling #Ring #Emeralds are for #Queens and #NoFilter Check out how casual I look…sorry didn’t expect it or I would have gotten diva’d up!
And here is the #RING!!!! I sooo love it. He did a wonderful job picking out my #Cabochon cut #Emerald which is a traditional style of cutting the stone in a dome shape. It’s set in yellow gold and is the original style in which #Emeralds in Colombia were cut. If you know me, you’d know I love history and we were taught how, why and where the emeralds are mined and cut. I’m excited to add on to the ring with accessories for my big yet small wedding. Stay tuned!
