We’re engaged!!

FI and I have been together for 8 years (since college) but we were waiting to be done with school first. With my grad program over in June of 2010, it was about time!

Anyway, I had gotten in the shower to get ready for my birthday dinner at an AWESOME restaurant. When I got out of the shower (only 15 minutes later), the living room was arranged with two formal table settings and a great cheese and wine spread, complete with a printed menu and my favorite flowers, which had been hiding out under the couch all day! FI suggested a toast after we ate and set the bottle down on the table. That’s when I noticed that the label, where labels usually show the location of the vineyard, listed all of the cities where we’ve lived together. I was like “Wait, you had this made!” (thinking it was a really really sweet birthday gift) and I turned the bottle around and there was the sweetest proposal printed on the back label!

The ring is a cushion cut, F color, VS1 clarity and a little over 1 carat. I’m a size 4.

FI timed it perfectly (I had an hour before we had to head to the restaurant—plenty of time for phone calls)!

Good luck to everyone!!

Thanks everyone!! I''m still so not used to the idea that we''re engaged!

I think FI got it somewhere in the New York Diamond District...but I''m not sure who the designer is.
