My Fiance (!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I are avid geocachers. We have been waiting for the weather to get nice so we could go out and make a day of it. Yesterday was the first nice day of the year that we both weren’t workiing so we planned a trip to a wildlife preserve where a bunch of caches were hidden.
I’ve known about the ring for a month and a half and I was a terrible waiting bee but never said anything (so glad I didn’t!). We got to the first cache and he didn’t propose so I thought “ok, today isn’t the day”. I didn’t let it get me down and we moved on to the next one. The cache was hidden under a fallen tree which I promptly jumped on top of and sat down to sign the logbook. Fiance stayed on the ground to rummage through the box. After a minute or two, he said “Honey, look what I found!” and when I looked up, he was holding out the open ring box. He asked me to marry him and I replied with a very ladylike “Holy $hit! Yes!!!” I put the ring on and we kissed and I was so flustered that I don’t remember much else!
Thank you, bees, for your support during my waiting period. I am so excited to plan my wedding with you!!
Now for the ring!
It was FI’s grandmother’s and the diamond was passed down from her father so we have no idea how old it could be. Here’s a close up:

What a great story! My friend proposed to his Fiance that exact same way, the funny thing is she didn’t get it at first and was like “OMG someone lost it! We have to find the owners! I bet they’re missing it!” Its pretty funny.
Lovely ring btw! And congrats!
