big news!



So what is the big news? I got engaged over the weekend! We've been talking about the next steps in our relationship for so long so I knew it was coming but I certainly wasn't prepared for the surprise of my life! It was so beautiful - I can't put all the emotions and happiness into words. My fiance (wow! I'm not used to saying that!) and I went to have a lovely dinner at Le Colonial, a beautiful Vietnamese restaurant and later was surprised by getting picked up by a Maserati that waited for us after we finished! (This is when I started to get VERY confused and knew something big was going to happen) The driver brought us to the Fairmont Heritage Place, which is right in Ghiradelli Square and there we made s'mores at the outdoor fireplace on the rooftop terrace...the view couldn't have been more picturesque - absolutely no fog and the sun was setting on the horizon. My love then brought me to the canopy and it was there that he asked me to marry him...my reaction was first shock followed by crying! I somehow managed to say YES through it all! I love him so much...thank you for letting me into your life...

Beaming ear to ear? :P
The whole thing sounds utterly romantic.
This may sound uncharacteristic of me...but...It's nice to see that good things DO happen to good people!
