And now, the shoutin'

As I blogged awhile ago, as far as Rich's and my engagement was concerned, it was all over but the shoutin'.

Well ... the shoutin' has commenced! Behold, the Bauble.

Rich popped the question at one of our favorite restaurants last night before a bellydancer friend, who was performing, and a bevy of total strangers. :) (Who sweetly wished us well. One guy even snapped a few digital photos of us and offered to e-mail them to Rich.)

It was sweet, romantic and totally overwhelming! Today, I've enjoyed admiring my left hand and showing off the Bauble to coworkers, people in the elevator, and all of you wonderful GGB readers.

By the way, that's a princess-cut center stone with princess-cut, channel-set diamonds on each side. What you can't see is a nice touch: tiny round diamonds in a circle around the base of the center stone, crown-style. ;-)

We'll have to see if some macro shots of the Bauble and your hand are possible, babe. I like the setting so much that we really do need a representatively clear shot to show off. :-D
