Default I went ahead and did it, so its official now, I'm engaged. :)

Well, since we are all kind of like family here (dysfunctional family), I figured I would share with you, my Subaru bretheren, my "original" web forum family. I am now engaged! I proposed to Shelly, my girlfriend of 3+ years last week. After giving it some thought, and knowing how well we work together it was an easy decision for me. Those that have seen us together would agree we are a good fit for each other, and well... I am happy with her, and she I. It made for a great ending to a gorgeous sunshine filled day. The view of the sunset when I proposed was icing to the cake.

Oh, and yeah she said Yes!

For those interested in the jewelry, here is a picture of the ring I gave her.


IT looks a bit purple-ish but its not, its just capturing the material her hand is on.

Anyway, Just figured I'd finally share the news with you all.

Now back to your regularly scheduled forum.

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.
