Brian proposed and I accepted (of course!), we are so happy! I cant believe what an amazing man Brian is, and I feel so blessed that I will be able to call him my husband :-)! It will be so fun to grow old with this man! He is adventurous, kind, loving, funny, smart, and all around perfect (sigh!)As it turned out he was in China on business when the engagement ring came in, so he proposed via skype videophone 🙂 I cried (of course), it was so beautiful!

The ring is a white gold mermaid with her arms wrapped around a black pearl, it is amazing! I will try to post pictures, my Internet is spotty and I am on Brian’s computer (mine died).

We will be married in the fall, on board Rain Dog at our Marina. Brian has a dear friend that will preform the ceremony and all our family and friends will be invited ;-).



  1. THANKS!! Thank you for the well wishes! My internet has been such that I could only read your comments, this is the first time I am able to post one. So Thank you again, it is great to hear from you. :-)ErikaThe future Mrs. Bearden

  2. hey. i was google'ing mermaid themed rings for my gf and have seen a few/but none that come close to how beautiful the one your husband got for you. would it be rude to ask where he purchased it??
