I am Engaged!





I am pleased to announce that I am Engaged. It all happened on December 29th 2007 up at Harrison Hot Springs.

Andrei surprised me with a trip to Harrison Hot Springs for the weekend. He said it was a treat after all the school (Master's Program) work and work I had in December, since I was getting pretty run down. I thought great idea. Friday night we settled into the hotel and then went to the hot spring pool. Andrei said he had a surprise for me later in the day, so I didn't think anything of it. In hindsight, I should have seen the clues, but after a year of dating we talked a little about getting married, and he said there would be no proposal unitl at least a year and a half. He wasn't himself on Friday night really or Saturday, he kept zoning out, as I could tell he was thinking about something. At this point, I still had no idea what.

Saturday afternoon after our walk to the Hot Springs, Andrei said he had a surprise for me. The surprise ended up being a two hour treatment to a spa. He gave me a facial and a body massage, what a treat that was, I came back so refreshed. Then he casually said that the plan was to go for dinner and then a walk to the beach, as with the cool weather we had not really spent anytime outside. That all seemed reasonable. So, after dinner he took me to the beach, and we were talking and walking just like normal (reminicing really). But, it seemed fitting since it was so close to the end of the year. We started to turn around, and then we stopped at a little undercover area. He pretended to tie his shoe, and then he took my hand, and then proposed in the light rain and snow down on one knee. It couldn't have been any more romantic I think. We both cried and hugged. The ring is beautiful, he has said that he went to 50 different stores to find the perfect ring. I absolutely love it, and I am now very excited about introducing my Fiancee to everyone!
