I know this has been a couple of weeks coming. I just got caught up with our house search, some mild wedding planning, and work. It’s amazing how crazy life becomes when everything seems to finally slide into place.
But yes, the big news! Bill proposed to me the night we went out to dinner for my birthday. So, on the 14th. We went to Blue Canyon for dinner, as planned. He had called ahead and made reservations, as well as telling them his plans. Which I was clueless about. When we showed up, the hostess was waiting for us and made the comment how “lucky we were, the best seat in the house had just opened up”. Which, being oblivious I had missed her saying that. I was just staring around the restaurant, the interior was gorgeous. So she sat us in the very front floor to ceiling picture window, right in the center. It overlooked a small waterfall and the valley outside the restaurant.
We ordered an appetizer, then dinner. We both had the evening’s special “special”, the aged Delmonico steak, which was the best steak I have ever tasted in my life. Then we ordered a desert. While waiting for desert to come, Bill got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It took everything in me not to cry, even knowing it was coming. I hugged him as tight as I could, kissed him and damn near screamed yes.
The evening itself was amazing, and more then I ever dreamed of. It just went perfect. Now it’s on to the wedding planning. We have our date set for September 9, 2009. So we have about 5 and a half months as I type this. I just can’t wait!
