Engagement night

Here's the whole story of the night when David proposed to me. It was the night before we were going on a business trip, so I wasn't expecting it to happen yet because we had so much to do to get ready!

He put a lot of planning into it and pulled it off beautifully. I thought that we were going to run errands for the trip, but the first "errand" was to the Guthrie Theater Costume Rental store. He said that we were going to dress up to draw people to our booth at the trade show, and the employees at the Costume Shop were all in on the ruse. There were a few things that made me wonder, but for the most part I was totally taken in. We dressed up as a Prince and Princess, so I got to try on lots of beautiful dresses. The one that we chose had been used on stage by the character playing Belle in "Beauty and the Beast". I think I looked most like Cinderella. I'll include a picture.

We wore our costumes out of the shop (supposedly to make sure that we would be comfortable in them for the trade show). The next stop was a spa named "Jewel Spa" to get manicures. I didn't catch the play on words, and he said that we were getting our nails done because we were going to be shaking so many hands at the trade show. I was definitely feeling that this could be the night by this point. I was glad that I had been letting my nails grow recently. (As a music teacher I usually have short nails for cello, violin, and piano playing.)

After the luxurious manicure, we went to Nicollet Island where there was a horse and buggy hired. It was like a little parade going through the streets and waving to people in our costumes. The driver stopped when we were on a bridge overlooking a waterfall on the Mississippi river and invited us to get out for a look. We enjoyed the view for a minute, then David gave a little speech, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I said yes!

The horse and buggy drove us to one of the restaurants with the best food in the city called the "112 Eatery" and we had a wonderful dinner. The whole evening was very special and I look forward to our life together.
