Ring in a wine glass is a cliche but experiencing that second is totally unimaginable for a lady. It may seem unreal and undeniable at the same time.

We know restaurants are out of reach at present, so why not use a balcony, living room, pool area, bedroom or any space you have available privately to arrange a trail of candles and flowers? Ring your woman after having her follow the trail. In the end, you can be positioned on your knees or have a big Marry Me written somewhere. Our heart is melting already!
