Well ladies it's happened! After having the ring for over a year and dating for 1.5 years the ring is now on my finger! And he was more than worth the wait :love:

We went on a hard core camping/canoe/backpacking trip and on the last night there while looking at the stars he proposed to me. He had written a note on how much he loved me (it was dark so he didn't have it with him) and he also spent the week whittling a wooden ring for me (not yet completed but he's working on it). He didn't use the wooden ring he made bc it wasn't up to par in his eyes (he's a perfectionist) but I LOVE it and can't wait for him to finish it (doesn't fit on any finger bc it's so small lol) but it was sweet, romantic and very us! He had told my dad and his dad before, so most of his family was already aware of it by the time we returned from our trip. We had a surprise b-day party for one of his family members so I got to wear my ring to it and the rest of the family who didn't know, found out that way.

Wedding details are under way although we haven't set a date yet. Probably by the end of the year but it all depends on where/when/how we want to do it. Right now just enjoying being engaged!

Specs on the ring: RB 1.64 H VVS1 in a circa 1930s setting with fish-tale style prongs. Ring size 4. The ring came all put together and it actually displayed beautiful arrows. Hopefully the pictures will upload. It's much more delicate in person and the milgrain is so tiny! The photos make them show up really well but it's much much finer than in the pics. I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful amazing ring (and large to boot!) but more so I feel very blessed to have such an amazing man in my life. :love: I never knew what unconditional love was until I met him (we knew right away we were meant to be together...crazy I know!) that treats me like a princess, tells me I'm beautiful so many times I day I lose track and goes out of his way to make me feel like I'm the most important person in the world.

Good luck to the other LIW and DUST to everyone!

beautiful ring and beautiful proposal! what you say about your relationship being the most important thing, and about knowing it was meant to be from the start really resonates with me - I don't think that's crazy at all! congrats, you must be SO happy!

Thank you everyone for the well wishes and congratulations :) We are very excited and it looks like the big day is Dec. 4th 2011 (yup, a bit over 3 months away). But I already have my dress (at the seamstress right now), the venue is picked out we just have to sign the contract, invitations are under way, flowers are picked out, chair covers/sashes are bought, found our center pieces and am already knee deep in buying/preparing for the big day. I"m very excited and DUST to all you ladies still waiting. Your day will come and even if it feels like its taking forever and you JUST don't understand what the hold up may be just remember the wait is worth it in the end when you get to marry your best friend! :appl: :love:
