He had horses waiting to take us to the top where he had prepared a candle lit picnic. Over looking the city we ate dessert and danced to 'our song'. Then he knelt down on one knee and asked to me to be his princess for eternity. :-) It was an exciting event when he did propose because he thought it would be funny the month prior to pretend propose to me with a huge fake ring not once, but three times!

What story does your family always tell about you? I loved, and still love to this day, FHV (family home videos on TV), and I would as a little girl just die laughing at every clip. My mom has videos of it still to this day! Also, I have dyslexia of the mouth so I will say things like "Sparking Pot" (Parking Spot) and "Charmy Lucks" (Lucky Charms) at random...they always get a kick out of that!
