I asked her last night just after midnight. When she saw the ring she said, ""Oh my god. Oh crap. Oh my god. Oh wow!"" She was literally hopping, running in place, and giggling. Once she''d regained some composure, she at intervals called the ring, ""perfect"" and ""beautiful"" among many, many other superlatives. She''s ecstatic.
While I know she loves me, and that if I''d given her a ring whittled from a quarter she''d be happy to have me, I think the ring being so very special and beautiful and perfect doesn''t hurt. ;)
Thank you for making the process of selecting the stone and setting a pleasure. You both were great fun to talk to, and very very helpful.
