I am beyond ecstatic, and so happy to finally share with the hive! Here’s the story…
While we normally go to Il Fornetto (a gorgeous waterfront restaurant) on special occasions, my FIANCE (omg so exciting to say that) said he wanted to go on Friday night due to a “seafood craving.” I thought it was a little odd, but after a wonderful dinner, when dessert came without a ring, I figured I was wrong to suspect. I went to the ladies room, and when I came back I see him hunched over in “stomach pain.” I told him I would get the check so we could leave, when all of a sudden he looks up at me is smiling then tells me how much he loves me….. and honestly I don’t remember another word he said! He opened up the box, and I couldn’t even see the ring, I was crying non-stop, and he put the ring on my finger. I forgot to even say yes until about 2 minutes later! I jumped on him, and after we kissed and hugged, I realized the waiters were standing close by. They asked him if I said yes, while i laughed, and then they announced our engagement to the people in restaurant, who applauded us. I happened to glance out the window by our table, and saw about 10 swans just sitting there. You normally see swans and ducks swimming by there, (which adds to the beauty of the place) but to see that many just when he proposed was amazing. It was so beautiful. I’m still wondering if he paid them to stop by……perfect timing.

I did, but not until after we were engaged. He really wanted to surprise me, so at least he ended up tricking me after all!
Thank you! we did not plan to match like that! lol
