Thank you for your best wishes, it was certainly a wonderful weekend. She had gotten me a weekend away at a bed and breakfast in the Berkshires (western Massachusetts) for Christmas, and it was a delight to turn her gift to me into one from me to her! Our first date had been a walk in a local state park, so I stuck with the theme, and proposed at a scenic overlook in the Pioneer Valley in the Chester-Blandford State Forest. It was very nice to have it just us, and the beauty of Nature surrounding. Dinner was at a fabulously romantic inn/restaurant called Blantyre. Things couldn''t have been more wonderful. And the ring certainly looked magnificent!
Many thanks for all your help,
