I recently got engaged… and it is such a sweet engagment that I had to share it!
One person is compatible with so many people, but only one is their soul mate…
Ryan and I had a date night last night. He took me to this restaurant where we had our first date: Jack the Horse Tavern in Brooklyn Heights. We drank the same wine that we had shared about a year and eight months ago. Food was great, and my mom was there in Spirit and in a painting… for real… there was this painting that looked exactly like her there. That was very special to me (later) because I had no idea what was about to happen in the next 30 min. Ryan was kinda jittery and couldn’t finish his glass of wine… and now I know why 🙂 So, then we decided to walk over the Brooklyn bridge, which was something that neither one of us had done. I then proceeded to tell him the reason why I love the Brooklyn Bridge: "I love the Brooklyn Bridge for no rhyme or reason, I have no connection with it… but I love it, it’s magical. It’s kinda like you. I met you with no connection to you, but I fell in love with you." We continued walking and there was this guy on the bridge playing the guitar. Ryan threw a dollar into his guitar case and he began to play OUR song (falling in love at a coffee shop). I was surprised and shocked and Ryan asked me, "Do you know why I love the Brooklyn Bridge? Because this is where I proposed to my wife." And then he knelt down, pulled out this GIANT rock and asked me to marry him! The guitar player, who was co-worker, continued playing and all the tourists started clapping and there was a photographer. Ryan’s family (mom, paul, bob, chris) and my nana came walking up the bridge to greet us. And then we CELEBRATED!!!!
