How Did He Propose?

Lifestyle | May 24, 2014

“How did he propose?” is the big question.

Egreis Gjergjani

Jeremy is a simple, simple man. It’s probably what attracted me to him initially. He loves his jeans, tennis shoes and sunglasses and he’s a happy man. He doesn’t need much, yet he gives the world to those he loves and cares about. For a complex person like me he’s the ideal guy. I guess all women are complicated, but I think I’m a bit more than most.

I’m stubborn, hard headed; I’m confrontational; I have a hard time adjusting to things when they don’t go as planned; I’m protective (sometimes a bit too much); I’m outspoken, I’m picky, and I demand a lot. Sheesh I’ve just described a monster sounds like. But truth is, I can be one. I have days that I can turn into a raving B* literally. To the point where I don’t even like my own self. Yet a man like my husband was able to see through that and fall in love with me. Because as much as I can be these things, I’m also a loving, dedicated person and I put my heart and soul into anything and anyone I love.

Someone as complex as I am needs someone calm and relaxed like Jeremy is. And although we are so different in so many ways, we make a good pair. We complement one another. Our career background is similar. He can relate to me, and I can relate to him.

Egreis GjergjaniWhen I used to work we could talk for hours about our jobs and consult one another on whatever business decision it is that we needed to make. And even now that I’m a stay at home mom, he finds comfort in knowing that he can come home and talk about his work knowing I understand everything. Is that important in a relationship? Does it matter? I think so. In my opinion it very much does.

Men are driven by success. Their career is often the highlight of their day, and their life really. It’s their work and what they’ve accomplished that makes them the man that they are, at least that’s how they measure it. As much as us women can sit here and tell them they’re this and they’re that; that they’re great and amazing, at the end of the day a real man who hasn’t reached his career goals and where he wants to be, is not a happy man. So to have a partner that knows, understands and supports everything that you are doing is huge. And we both value that about one another. We find comfort in it and it is a great feeling.

We make a good partnership. And the way we have accomplished it is by communicating loudly and clearly. We know what our roles are in our relationship. I have my duties and he has his. It could have very well been the typical relationship I’ve seen growing up: men working, women taking care of home. But we are so much more than that.

Egreis Gjergjani StilettomeupMy husband is caring; he is loving; he is soft and sweet; he is romantic; he knows when to offer and give me a good rub; he knows when to give me a hand with our son, and when to get involved in the kitchen. To me that’s what a real man is all about.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not always peaches and cream. Heck, it’s never peaches and cream, nor would I ever want it this way. Matter of fact right now he thinks I’m mad at him 🙂 Saturdays are my cleaning days. He knows I love to scrub and get on my hands and knees and literally scrub everything and anything; lifting couches and beds type of cleaning; and he knows I like order and having things organized. It is what I need to feel good about life and it’s what I need to find peace. Perhaps it’s strange, but he knows this is who I am.

Egreis Gjergjani StilettomeupSo today I was on a mission to finish organizing our home office. We just moved a month and a half ago and I wanted to attack it and be done with it. Our furniture for that room came so there was no need to delay it any longer. Well, being the man that he is, he started on the scanner, and by the time he was done it was 3 hours later, and he was ready to move on to his man cave and do whatever. Clearly, that is a “piss Egi off” move. LOL. Sounds so petty. I’m so over it but he thinks I’m in our room cooling off when really, I’m here just praising him, because in all honesty, he truly is a great man. And I’m proud of him.

Now if you didn’t know anything about me, know this: i’m the queen of digressing. I can go on and on and on completely off topic. So, let’s talk about this engagement of ours, shall we?

I always wanted a square/rectangle type of ring. And I knew I wanted it BIG. Not because I care about the size of it..cuz after so many years and lessons later I’ve learned it means absolutely NOTHING, but because when I was a young girl, size did matter, and I had dreamt of having a 7 carat ring. It is important for me to reach all of my dreams. See, I have this thing about the number 7. I was born January 7, at 7 o clock, 1987, and well, it’s my lucky number to say the least. So I really wanted a 7 carat diamond. And Jeremy knew that. Heck, I think I mentioned it to him on the first few dates. Now that I think about it, I’ve pretty much told him everything scary, annoying, and unattractive about me from the beginning so that in case he ever wanted to get out, he could do it right there and then and not waste my time nor break my heart. Probably not a wise thing to do on my part, but he says he loved it and it didn’t put him off not one bit.

Jeremy has a background in jewelry. At some point in his life he ran the finances for a big jewelry company. So needless to say he knows his rocks. But one thing he doesn’t know is how to surprise me. Somehow I always find a way to ruin them. Either that, or I just simply know how to get it out of him. I think he has only managed to successfully surprise me 3 times. That’s not so much considering the attempts he has made 🙂 I love his soul dearly.

IMG_6196You’re probably picturing this lavish, extraordinary proposal when in reality it was the most simple and beautiful thing ever. We had gone to Los Angeles to visit friends and family. We woke up on the morning of July 26th and it was a regular day, like all others. He told me he needed to go to the post office to grab a package. According to Jeremy he had planned on doing this big proposal thing in LA, but apparently I screwed it up 🙂

He tried to go to the post office by himself, but I wanted to tag along. I didn’t have anything to do, so what better than hop in the car and go with him? He comes to the car with this big box. I ask him as usual “What is that babe?” He says “oh just work stuff”. Mind you, we’re on a mini vacation in LA and this “work” thing had to be delivered today and he doesn’t want to share what it is…hmmmm sounded fishyyyyy! Lol. So of course I start digging. And finally he couldn’t hold it anymore so he let me open it.

This damn package was the hardest thing to open. I swear. I get through the box, only to find out there’s another smaller box in it, and then another, and another, and finally this small box. I thought for a split second…”could this be what I think it is?” I didn’t even have a chance to continue thinking. I looked at Jeremy and he had a very blank expression on his face. So I thought, “no, no way, he would be smiling”. He was playing the game right.

I will never forget the feelings I felt when I opened the box and slowly but surely I was seeing the corners of my radiant diamond. It was unbelievable. SO perfect. So clear. So sparkly. So UNREAL. It had a very small halo around it and the band had small diamonds all throughout. It was simple, yet so elegant; plain, yet so fancy; it was everything I had wanted and more. He did GREAT.

 We had gotten married two months prior to the day of our engagement and Jeremy felt bad that he didn’t have a ring to give me then, but he was looking for the perfect one, is what he told me. He had seen many but wasn’t sold just yet. He bought the diamond from his diamond guy who is in the business of diamonds solely. And finally he showed him this one: a 7.7 radiant cut diamond. Jeremy says the second he saw it he just knew that was the one.

The funny part about it is the 7.7 number. We had always wanted to have a ceremony on 7.7 of whichever year, didn’t matter. I think we had decided on that date way before we had even planned on getting married officially. We just really liked that date, so to find a diamond with those same numbers was almost like it was meant to be. He built and designed the entire ring. And boy was it perfect! Every day I find myself looking at it and smiling. It’s any girl’s dream. Heck, it’s STILL my dream and still feels so unreal. I am thankful. Every day.

Soon it will be one year since we got married. At some point i want to modify or add a band to my ring. We haven’t had a wedding yet because I was so sick during my pregnancy but I’m working on it. Hopefully next year but it is so hard doing it while having a little baby on our hands. I’m definitely taking my time with it. I am not rushed, if anything it gives me more time to get back to my pre pregnancy weight, although J wants another mini us soon sooooo 🙂 lol.

But you know…whatever is written for us…we welcome it. All that matters is our health.

    I really enjoy reading about you and I love the way you write…you always spice it up with jokes and a little bit off topic and bring it back to the begging. It feels like we are having coffee at Starbucks and talking about our daily stuff lol.
    Wish you nothing but the best! You have such a beautiful family & I enjoy Gio’s pix. Im a new mommy too (one month old daughter)& I relate to so many stuff u say and upload here or ig.
    Can’t wait for you to have another baby, hopefully a girl, so you can dress her up like a princess 🙂 & as of a wedding if you don’t plan one just rent or buy a dress and go have fun somewhere nice with the family and take fab pix. I did my ceremony at a park, by the roses garden, and took pix. It was beautiful and had only family members (we’re like 8-10 total) 🙂 good luck zemer dhe unaza eshte simply breath taking….muahhh.

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      Thank you zemer. Faleminderit shume shume. I appreciate it and congrats on everything. Sometimes I feel like just doing something small but then I change my mind when I see all the pictures I have saved as wedding inspiration haha. So I guess we’ll just have to play it by ear

  2. Daria says:

    Here’s a question for you…if you never cared about size because supposedly that doesn’t matter why were you so set on getting a BIG ring? What if you married someone that couldn’t afford a 7 carat ring, would size still matter to you then, or you wouldn’t marry him because he couldn’t buy you a 7 carat ring. It’s so sad what this world has come to and people like you are what is “inspiring” the next generation.

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      People like me…hmm well why don’t you show me how you’re a better person? Why don’t you show me how you’re more inspiring than me? And more importantly how is it that all that you took from everything I share on my blog is that I wanted a 7 carat diamond? Let me guess, cuz you wanted to pick me apart on that particular thing. You wanted to find something to attack me on, anything. Now let’s address your questions here.

      I never said I was “set on him getting me a 7 carat ring”. I knew I always wanted a 7 carat diamond ring. Whether it would be the ring my husband proposed to me with or not it doesn’t matter. But I set on getting one at some point in my life. Even if it meant getting one for myself. I believe in having dreams and reaching them one day. My husband could and so he did make that dream come true. And yes he married me. So “people like me” as you call it may not be able to please judgmental people such as yourself but they are inspiring to others because they have a good heart and they are positive. Oh and they surely don’t go on people’s pages and bash them just because they live a life they wish they did.

      I would respect your opinion if it was valid, but seeing that you ignore all other parts and posts I share daily and chose to judge me on one sentence only lets me know it’s not that you truly feel that way, but it’s that you simply don’t want to like me. And that’s ok, but then have some respect for your own valuable time and do not waste it on my page.

      Have a blessed day and may your life be full of love and positivity. Wish you all the best.

    How did you meet him? A lot of websites say that he was married when u met him?

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      Lol gossip sites where people can anonymously write whatever? Haha no. Definitely not. We met at work. Plus I don’t think his kids and I would have such a great relationship if I were dating him while he was married. People just always love finding something negative to say. We’re ok with it. We know the real deal. 🙂

      1. Ana says:

        I guess my reply comment didn’t make the cut 😉

        1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

          I actually didn’t get one love.

          1. Ana says:

            There is no negativity here…I was simply searching your name on google to find your blog and that’s where is saw the information stated in my previous comment (along with some not flattering pictures of you and statements that claimed you were a gold digger/sugar mama). I didn’t want to assume that’s why I asked you 🙂 thank you for your reply ps. Your son is the cutest

          2. Egreis Gjergjani says:

            Thank you!!! He’s my world. And I wasn’t referring to you when I said negativity but to the gossip sites.You are entitled to believing what you please. But I do appreciate you for asking. That’s very noble of you! So thank u.

  4. Joanne Arc says:

    I love this story! Sometimes the simplest things are the best things in life! You are inspiring I actually follow your blogs and Instagram daily! And you are right, the person above decided to pick that one line about your 7 carat ring rather than appreciate or establish everything else you had Said! Keep on inspiring and god bless x

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      Thank you so much!
      I think people fail to realize that I never asked to be inspirational; I don’t get paid to inspire anyone; I certainly don’t charge for sharing my life and giving my tips here and there so I don’t understand the anger they have when others say they’re inspired by me. If that’s the effect I have on some people then it is a choice they’ve made. I am definitely not profiting from it. If anything all I’ve gotten is mad hate all because of others looking up to me. I will continue to share my experiences; good or bad I am learning. I’m willing to share it and perhaps someone will learn or be inspired. Whichever way it’s worth it to me. So thank you again

  5. Rachida says:

    Omg, such a great couple. i enjoyed reading about your personality, proposal, your husband, gio… You’re such a great person( by the way you don’t seem to be like what you have described yourself with lol).

God bless you and your family. Please don’t waste your time replying to haters

  9. Desiree says:

    I love reading about your beautiful life and absolutely adorable baby! I hope I dont cross any lines by asking you this- that is the last thing I would EVER want to do! I was just wondering, do you keep your maiden name because that is the name people know you by and you didnt want to confuse anyone or will we be seeing your married name soon? Just wondering! Maybe just me being a little nosey ^_^ ♡♡♡

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      Haha I kept my maiden name because it’s important to me. It’s the Albanian piece of me that I want to continue representing

      1. Desiree says:

        That’s really awesome! Thank you for being such a good person to look up to! 🙂

  10. Reniesha says:

    Hi, i am really enjoying your blog and all the wonderful things you post about yourself and beautiful family. You inspire so many of your followers and i myself. i ill also be coming up on a one year weeding in anniversary with my husband, and your reading this is vey beautiful. My husband and i are also have been in the baby making stage and in the back of mind i keep telling myself it will never happen. seeing your pics and captions of your beautiful baby boy Gio turns my worries into joy and faith to know that one day i will have a little one to call my own. Thank you for sharing your life with us your followers.

  11. Marilu says:

    This post brought tears to my eyes, it’s simply amazing, I love how you can put everything to words so adequately. See I’m so happy to see what an amazing couple you guys are. My fiancé and I love empowering each other just like you speak of Jeremy, and I think it is so important that one supports and compliments their partner in all ways. Life is messy, and my fiancé and I argue and get upset with each other to the point of madness but the happy moments make it ALL worth it. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful story! And congrats on your marriage.



    Your diamond is absolutely STUNNING. But you know idiots only like to talk about shiny things so they had to talk about your diamond lmao.

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      How adorable! Congrats on your engagement lovely! The way I see it is if we are not arguing then we don’t care enough to argue and that is a bad sign lol

  12. Susana says:

    LOVE IT! Had to write about it on my blog 🙂

  13. Jamie says:

    ❤️hi Egreis!!!

    Thank you, for sharing your life with us! I love your blog & your posts on ig. You are very fortunate & blessed and I admire you because beyond that you always try and help others. Some of us arn’t as fortunate as others and some of our dreams don’t come true ,but it is good to hear that others dreams do come true and that just gives us hope…..

    Blessings to you and your wonderful family❤️

    Love reading your blog and seeing your baby pic

  16. Ashley says:

    Wow! So perfect! I loved reading this! I’m so happy for you. I love your writing.

  17. Yamilet says:

    You are so inspiring. I look up to you because you take family love to another level it looks like you really appreciate and never take for granted none of them you are what I will like to be when I have a family. At first when I started fallowing you on IG I did just because of your shoes but now I fallow you because you are just so loving and positive about everything. These people are probably just looking at the bad in you because just like you said they can’t live a life like you and I’m not talking about the shoes the clothes I’m talking about the love that surrounds you.


  18. Caragh says:

    So glad to hear another down-to-earth engagement story! My husband and I have been together since we were teenagers, so we had discussed marriage and the future many, many times. We knew we wanted to get engaged, and we knew that we were ready at that exact time. We had discussed a budget we were comfortable with and we were just looking for the one that felt like ‘us’. I found it, I told him, he bought it, and we went on a picnic to celebrate our purchase, even though we had both agreed that the proposal would be for later. There I was, blissfully gullible and having a great time. He asks me how he should propose, and I tell him I think I’ve already helped him more than normal! He asks if now would be a good time, and out of nowhere, my glorious ring is there and he is down on one knee. I imagined this moment to be emotional and moving, but instead I giggled like a school girl and interrupted him over and over to ask if he was really proposing to me!
    Anyway, sorry to write a novel in your comments; just wanted to share my happiness of finding a relatable engagement story. Best wishes from my happy marriage to yours 🙂

    I follow you on insta and you’re amazing! Keep up the good work!!

    One question that confused me during this blog is you said that you haven’t had a chance to have a wedding yet…but you refer to J as your husband? so are you married? if so I would love to see your wedding photos!

    1. Egreis Gjergjani says:

      Hi Dee,
      Thank you.
      Wedding is just the ceremony part of getting married. So my husband and I got married at the court house two months prior to getting a ring 🙂

  39. Jessica says:

    Awww so sweet… Congrats! I LOVE the ring of course! Very beautiful couple. Gio is so Adorable! Wish you guys the best in life!

  40. Jocelyn says:

    Wow I didn’t know you’re 27. The same age as me, I thought you were older and not by looks but by the way your personality is very mature! I’m really impress with your parenting skills and how you have a good relationship with your husband’s kids. Not many women would act mature about it. The fact that you breastfeed exclusive even though you have implants and quit your career to be a stay at home mom is very inspirational! So many women only want careers and make more money but you being young and devoted to your family is truly amazing. I’m at stay at home mom and I love every bit of it. Cooking, cleaning and taking care of my kids is the most blessing job a mother can have. Your son will truly be proud of you 🙂
    You should blog about how you met your hubby. I love reading love stories.

      Hi love,
      Thank you thank you thank yoU! It’s always amazing to read such comments from people I’ve never met. Goes to show that the world really is a great place and people are for the most part nice. Esp when such comments come from women in a society where women normally tear each other apart. So thank you!!! And I appreciate it. <3

    I followed your ig page before Gio and after. Being a mother changes your life forever. My daughter is 11 months and she has taken over my life but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Some days I look horrible and a bun has become my best friend along with sweat pants

    Whose the designer ? I have to show my boyfriend some rings an gosh I always wanted a 7 carat, an told me I can search for a 4 carat… Because He suggested it was big enough size for my petite frame. I didn’t mention a bigger one but if I fall in love maybe he will let me have it anyways.

    How beautiful! My husband is pretty simple himself, sometimes I know he looks at me like “Why do you have to make some things so difficult at times” lol, but then he reminds me that its worth everything just to spend time together. I am so happy for you and your family, and wish you all nothing but the best.
