Ocean Dreams tagged me in a fun photo post. (thank you!)
So here are the rules...
* Open my first photo folder
* Scroll down to the 10th photo
* Post that photo and story on my blog
* Tag five friends to do the same
This picture is of TL. It actually tells the story of when we got engaged. He is standing right where he proposed, just a few hours before he did.
I can't believe this was the 10th photo - I love it.
This is actually a joke. It was smoldering hot in Napa that beautiful Friday afternoon. August 29th, 2008 to be exact! :) So of course, he had to pose like he was freezing.
We had gone wine tasting that afternoon, and he had mentioned that he made reservations at Auberge De Soleil (a beautiful restaurant over looking Napa valley). So I was getting ready for dinner. He came into the bathroom, right after I finished doing my mascara - which ended up all over my face, of course- and told me to come out to the patio because there were two beautiful birds swimming in the fountain. He wanted me to "check them out".
So I did.
I got out there and saw the birds (they were pretty). He was standing right next to that table and he looked at me and said "I have something to match your pretty necklace". (He had gotten me a diamond necklace a few weeks earlier and kept telling me that he "liked my pretty necklace")
I thought it was earrings.
Then he got down on one knee.
He looked at me with the most loving and genuine eyes and said...
"Tracy, I love you so much...
will you marry me?"
and I said YES!
So that's our story... although the tag doesn't ask for it, here is a picture of the ring he opened up in front of me when he got down on one knee.
I am still in love with it and look down at it at least 100 times a day.
I tag ALL of you... please let me know if you do it.
But here are some fellow bloggers I am especially interested in hearing from!
I did more than 5 :)
PS. Bottom Of The Ironing Basket... you too :)
