So here goes...
This is us on the plane about 30 minutes after I found out we were going to Paris...
The first glass of champagne in Paris...
Tonight, Vince said we were going to explore the city. We had been walking for about 10 minutes when I saw this. I knew what it meant the second I saw it. Three years ago we went to see Christmas lights at a place called Lake Lanier. At the end of the light show they have a big fair with a ferris wheel. I told him that night that I thought it would be absolutely amazing to get engaged at the top of a ferris wheel in the middle of all those lights. As soon as I saw this I knew what all of the planning and secrecy has been about. He never forgot that I wanted to get engaged on a ferris wheel. He just kicked it up a notch and found a ferris wheel in Paris.
The ferris wheel overlooked the Eiffel Tower, Parliament, and the Arc de Triumph. Unbeknownst to me, he begged the attendant to let us have a booth to ourselves (they were enclosed and seated about 6 people) thankfully the guy was a romantic and let us on alone!
At the very top of the ride, Vince said the most amazing things to me. While we were looking at the Eiffel Tower, he got down on his knee.
I said yes.
Afterwards, we went to a romantic dinner with steak and FRENCH fries!!!
They are so fancy in France. They have sparkly chandeliers in the STREETS!! I want to live here!
So thats the end of my incredibly anticipated, and unbelievably romantic engagement to the most incredible man of my dreams.
