Since I have told the story several times today I think I will write it up here to try and save my voice (which I am losing after all the phone calls today).
The choice to get married:
Tim and I have been together almost four years so really this was a no brainer. As everyone knows both of us we couldn't be more perfect for each other. So we had been talking about it for a while. And finally we decided it was silly to wait any longer.
We headed to Robbins Brothers and picked out the ring you see in the post above. We thought this would be a difficult choice. But with the help of Arik our salesman, there was no question we found the right ring.
Last weekend we picked up the ring and impatiently waited for this weekend to roll around to make it offical.
Last night Tim and I headed to our favorite fancy resturant, Cezanne.
On our way there we heard the song we consider our song, "Such Great Heights" on the radio in the car. When we got to the resturant, the waiter we had had the first time we went to Cezanne four years ago when we first started dating was our waiter. Things just seemed to be falling into place so perfectly.
After we had dinner Tim took my hand and said all matter of wonderful things to me all of which lead me to cry. And he gave me the ring.
We apparently surprised the waitstaff who thought we were just there for a nice dinner out. They gave us complimentary champagne with a little slice of strawberry. Then we enjoyed awesome desserts.
Then out of excitement I called my mom and woke her up. It was midnight her time afterall.
The diamond is from Tim's materal grandmother's engagement ring. The band as I said above is from Robbins Brothers. And it is simply beautiful in my humble opinion.
Thanks everyone for your congratulations and well wishes. We look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.
