Well I did it. I'm engaged. We went hiking in the Cuyahoga Valley over the weekend and I asked Kristen to marry me. She had no idea I was going to ask her. This is a picture I took moments before she got the surprise of her life. We had talked about getting married several times but she wasn't expecting me to plunk down the money for the rock for a year or so. But I came into a windfall of cash so I decided why not get the ring while I have the money and ask her now. We have been together since July '03 and have lived together since August '05. We'll get married once she gets out of college (in about a year). I'm still taking all this in.
