The update...I'm engaged. :o)

Some of you know that my dear BF asked me to go to Paris for New Year's. We left on the 28th and got back around midnight last night. The whole trip was the trip of a lifetime. We saw the Louvre, the Musee d'Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and did a lot of walking around and sightseeing. Our hotel was gorgeous. Everything was so opulent and beautiful. On our first night, we walked to the Arc de Triomphe. I was looking around, taking it all in. They still had Christmas lights up all around and it was beautiful. Well, I looked back at my BF and he was down on the ground, on one knee. He asked me to marry him right there and I cried and of course, said yes. He said I make him happier than he has ever been, he can't imagine his life without me, he knew he wanted to marry me from our first or second date, etc. He cried, too, and right then a couple ran over and said they had seen the whole thing and congratulated us. They took our picture so we could have a photo of our special time. The last night we were there, we went to a five star restaurant to celebrate. Y'all, I have never been anywhere like that! It was SO beautiful. The staff was so attentive and the food was amazing. This ol' girl had never seen anything like it! BF bought me a fancy dress to wear that night, and he looked so handsome in his suit. It was the most magical night of my life. I am so thankful to him for taking me. It truly was the trip of a lifetime.

We are planning to wed this summer, and I will be moving to his town and looking for a new teaching job. I am so excited to begin our life together.

Congrats! What a beautiful story! And what a great BF/fiance!

I got engaged in France as well (although not Paris). It was on the northern coast of France in Saint Malo. It was lovely too!
