The ultimate engagement ring - challenge 2

Challenge 2: Our reason

Vote for us and help us get engaged - we're in competition for the ultimate engagement ring!

Hello world,

Challenge 2 is to tell the world why we deserve to win the contest. It also becomes our profile description.

To learn more about the contest for the ultimate engagement ring, see my original blog post or visit

Here's our entry:

When I sat down to start writing this, I decided to interview EJ. And when I asked, “Why do you think we should win the 22 carat engagement ring?”, I expected some strategic answer. But he just smiled bashfully, lowered his gaze, and said simply, “Because I want to marry you.”

It made my heart glow and my ears tingle.

It’s really that simple. We are in love. We were high school sweet hearts. We tell each other “I love you” at every opportunity, even after being together for nearly 9 years. We make each other laugh. We’ve worked hard for the life that we have, and our team name is our motto: Even if the world is against us, we will arise victorious.

We fit together like puzzle pieces, so we can rely on each other to get through anything. I’m creative; he’s logical. I sing away the silence; he enjoys his quietude. I run early; he runs on EJ time. I feel more myself around him; he sometimes forgets that we are really two separate people.

He adores me; I would lose myself without him.

Help us live the fairytale. Thank you!
