How can I propose [again] to my wife?

I'm married. Have been for 9 years now. Perhaps for the 10th, perhaps sooner, I'd like to propose to my wife.
When our relationship got to the point where we were thinking about marriage, I was in the "I know we're going to marry, but I'll wait for a convenient time" stage [we were in college, nearing the end]. She had good points as to why we should get engaged now, and the (ahem) 'discussion' essentially ended up along the lines of, "fine--let's get married!"
Not exactly the dream proposal. And it still bothers me to this day--you don't really get to re-do your marriage proposal...or do you? I'll never be able to change what was a poor execution on my part, but I can try to do something nice, now.
Is this a stupid idea? If not, what are some good ideas, especially considering that we're married already? There's plenty of stuff out there about the 'normal' proposal, but I'm of course more interested in my unique circumstances.
