A week ago, on October 4th, the Man and I celebrated our third anniversary of dating. We went to Olive Garden for dinner as we do every year, somewhat recreating our first date. Plus, who doesn't love a little Italian food, those breadsticks, and the best little mints I've ever met?
We always have a good time together, and that night was no different. It was a perfect evening and I thought it couldn't get any better. I was wrong.
The Man surprised me, as we walked up to our front door, by getting down on one knee and asking me to marry him. I was a mix of shocked, stunned and completely thrilled. I still am and couldn't be happier.
Not only was his proposal perfectly us, but so is the story behind it all. I'll save you from the sappiness. But I know I wouldn't be your typical (albeit nerdy) bride to be if I didn't include the requisite ring pic.
