The Proposal

We are Engaged and getting married February 19, 2010.

Paul proposed November 4, 2009. He had his friend come pick me up at my house, blindfold me and then took me to the planned destination. In the car I thought he was just killing time asking all sorts of questions. For example, if you could have dessert with Paul would you choose carrot cake or cheesecake? I said cheesecake. His friend did the same thing with what type of flowers, what Paul would be wearing, and what songs to dance to etc. Little did I know another friend was hiding in the back seat of the car and texting Paul all the answers that I responded to.

Meanwhile, Paul and his sister Alisa were at our favorite park (Freestone Park) receiving all the text messages and setting up exactly what I had answered. When I arrived, and the blindfold was taken off, I was sitting in the middle of a huge field at a table covered in roses, my favorite songs were playing and I was staring into Paul's glassy eyes. He was so nervous he barley touched his red velvet cheesecake. This is rare! I was so nervous... I gobbled mine down! We chatted and then he asked me to dance to one of our Favorite songs, "Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You" by Lady Antabellum. Then as our other favorite song, "Making Memories of Us" by Keith Urban came on, Paul finally dropped to one knee and asked the big question! I was so happy! I said yes and fell to the ground with him to hug him.

The rest is history!
