I took forever to get to the Bee to tell you all!
My SO proposed to me on his birthday on Saturday. BEFORE the snow screwed up the plan, my FI planned his own surprise party. He had his best friend invite all of our friends and my sister to a lounge in NYC for what was his “surprise” birthday party after dinner with me. I thought it was really a surprise party for him, but he was really intending to propose and then have all of our closest friend and siblings there to celebrate!
Unfortunately, the snow screwed it all up bc of the icy roads but ended up being a romantic part of the proposal. We woke up early Saturday morning, it was already snowing but he rushed me up to get breakfast before the roads got bad. I threw on same makeup and a hat but he ended up driving to Bear Mountain, where we parked by a valley with a frozen lake and nothing but trees and the woodpeckers lol. He talked about how coming to this spot when he was riding his motorcycle brought him a lot of peace and tranquility, how it made him so happy and he couldn’t wait to share more of these things with me throughout our life together. Then he got down on one knee and asked me three times before I could finally get through the tears and hugging enough to say YES!
I will edit with a pic later since I am at work and can’t get service for the life of me lol.

The ring on his finger LOL
I love it! It’s a custom made 14k gold ring. The diamond is a 1.51 carat princess cut, F color. It also has 16 little diamonds (no idea the carats on those) surrounding it in a non-halo. I am over the moon with it. I love that I won’t see my exact ring on anyone else ( at least not soon hopefully lol).
Thanks for the sweet comments bees!

LOVE the photos… and the uniqueness of your ring (those side diamonds)
The setting is truly for a Princess… it looks as if it was set upon a “Royal Cushion”
I got here by reading your other post on the Ring Board…
Came right over to read the more extensive details on the Proposal
Sounds soooo dreamy.
You must be on cloud 9
