Thanks for the congrats guys!
Chano - you are correct in that we laid a good foundation for our relationship. This was one reason it was fairly easy for me to ask her.
Jessi - Thank you, the ring is actually quite nice in person, purtier than the pic. There is also a nice intricate design on the sides and underneath that cant be seen as easily in the pic.
Domin8r - hahah, Yes, "Yes" is the preferred response. Those that know us more closely know she probably would not have any other answer but yes. BUT, it was still nice hearing hearing her say yes, as well as seeing her smile and giddy with excitement and crying happy tears.
