About two weeks. He told me he wanted to do it sooner but I was sick as a dog at that time . So, he didn’t wanted my napkins to intervene and arranged it later on. Hehehe

In retrospect I know now that he had had the ring for about two month. He told me that he had to go TDY to the US. Truth was, he just flew there to pick up my ring. It couldn’t be sent via USPS because of insurance and FedEx would have caused other troubles. He then proposed on our one year anniversary in London by the Fountain Of Joy Of Life in Hyde park. In between I managed to find the box (cardboard box) twice and was yelled at to not “rumage” (I was cleaning 😂) through his stuff. It all makes a good story now. Plus, now he is hiding all my gifts at a friend who lives in our building to prevent me from accidentally find them.

He proposed without a ring because he said he couldn’t wait any longer to be engaged. We chose a vintage diamond Victorian stand in ring a couple of days later (which I still wear the odd time on my right hand) and it acted as my engagement ring until he designed and had my permanent engagement ring made.
