Hi Bees! This is my first post here, but I’ve been a long time follower of the board. We’ve been together for almost 2 years and started looking at rings in January. This past week, we took a road trip through the Blackhills of South Dakota and then to Westen Nebraska, his birthplace and hometown. it was my first time in the Midwest, and I was in awe of the beauty of it. On the last day of the trip, we went up to Scotts Bluff National Monument, which is itself quite a sight to see. we walked on a fairly deserted trail that led to a beautiful vista of the valley. when we got to the top, my boyfriend (now fiancé!) got on one knee and asked me to be with him forever. while we have talked about getting married extensively since looking at rings, I was still surprised in the best way possible. As I blubbered through my tears, I said yes! he, being so nervous, then tried to hand the ring to me and I said no, you have to put it on lol! It was the best ending to this trip that I could have hoped for!
