Some of us are waiting impatiently for winter to be over, as we shiver and curse the cold air. Then there are those of us who cherish every moment that winter brings, enjoying each cozy second under our fuzzy blankets, warming up with our significant other by the light of Netflix, the falling snowflakes twinkling outside our window. There is only one thing that would bring extra sparkle to the already shimmering winter scene – a diamond ring and a ‘Yes.’
