Default "Congratulate me boys," (and girls) "I'm engaged!"

After three years, it's finally official: my sweetheart Steve asked me to marry him! Looking to a Fall 2007 wedding, and I couldn't be more excited.
Here's the engagement ring:


Apparently, my grandmother gave it to him weeks ago, after he'd asked my parents their permission to marry me. (What a gentleman, eh?) It was my great-grandmother's wedding set, she passed on last April and designated it to the first married great-grandaughter. It's a beautiful set, which Steve had cut down from a 9(!) to a 5. The wedding band is five round cut diamonds that match the two on either side of the center stone in the eng. ring.

Whoa! Nice heirloom rock! Congratulations. Steve sounds like a nice guy. Not too many men ask permission anymore. (I don't think....)
