The Proposal and Ring

Ok, you guys deserve more so here you go.

He proposed to me yesterday evening while I was in the bathtub.  He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.  Before that during dinner we’d talked about how great these 4 years have been and how right it is.  We talked about how we hope to have decades more to go and that we’re already as married as anyone else.

Here is the ring, it’s exactly what I wanted.  Exactly.  It’s a high level garnet (princess cut) on a white gold ring.  It’s still weird wearing it, I’m not used to a ring this big or whatever.  I’m all paranoid I’ll scratch it or something.

Can’t wait to start planning the wedding but it’s not going to be for a little while.  I’m debating starting a blog just for the wedding so I don’t drive you guys too crazy.

    Happy belated congratulations!!!! As you know I just finished my treatments last week and I’m still trying to catch up on everyone’s blogs, as well as trying to cut down on my anxiety and reduce my stress level.

    But I am so, so happy for you!!!! I’m a HUGE fan of white gold, and especially of red stones (my birthstone is a ruby) — it’s absolutely gorgeous!!!! :thumbsup:
