I did have a great christmas and new year and I did in fact propose! After Christmas my fiance and I took a trip to niagara falls. I asked her to marry me there. She was soooo excited. She was really amazed about how much the diamond sparkled (she has no idea how much research I did to get a diamond like that haha). The next day she got compliments from random people who said that they love her ring and the way it sparkles. Thanks so much for your help. I will be sure to call you when we are going to buy our wedding bands.
