Occasionally in the course of my job I come across cute stories. I was doing a review for Helzberg and found this one:

Am I the Duck for You?
The day was like no other. A beautiful Saturday in June without a cloud in the sky! My boyfriend Anthony casually asked me if I wanted to have a picnic in Central Park. Of course I said yes, not knowing what he had in mind!
When we arrived at the park, Anthony suggested that we rent a boat. We had never done that before, so I was excited to give it a try! We rowed out in the lake, enjoying the view of the tall buildings with the lush foliage at their base. Anthony rowed closer to one of the banks of the lake, where two ducks (male and female) were sitting. I made a comment that ducks mate for life and that was when Anthony asked, "am I the duck for you?" I laughed and said yes!! He then got down on one knee (in the boat) and asked me if I would marry him. I was so overcome by joy that I started to cry!! Needless to say, Anthony slipped the ring on my finger as I said yes over and over! I could not believe how exquisite the ring was. It sparkled so much that it cast a milion stars on the side of the boat! This moment was beyond special and everyday when I look at my beautiful ring, I am reminded of that day... and of course, ducks!
