So first I want to once again thank you and everyone at WF. I realize that my transaction was not the norm given my laundry list of requirements including a last minute switch to a designer brand. In the end it was wonderful to work with you and I definitely appreciated the support.
As you may have guessed Katie and I are now officially engaged - she said ""yes."" I decided to get a really nice room in downtown SF and then decorate the room with tons of flowers and candles. Since she was arriving in Friday night I had plenty of time to prepare the room without her knowing. In any event I was very careful to give her no indication of my plans and I even told her I was not feeling well when I picked her up at the airport. When she walked into the hotel room and saw everything she was caught totally off-guard. The rest is history. We would spend the weekend visiting a couple wineries in Napa, dining at one of the best restaurants on the planet, and having brunch aboard a boat while watching the Blue Angels perform over SF.
FYI, she was more than happy with the ring... I think the word was ""cloud nine."" =)
