Okay, so I promised to share the story of how David proposed. I decided to take pictures of the scrapbook that I made while we were dating. I so wish I had a 12X12 scanner. Oh well...
Remember how I mentioned that David gave me a promise ring in December 1999. Well, one of the reasons he did that was because he was leaving in January to do a study abroad program through college for a semester. I was not thrilled to say the least but the ring made me a little happier. Anyway, he lived in Pau, France and traveled all over Europe for a semester and I made some really good grades that semester because he wasn't here distracting me!
For Spring Break I was able to fly to Paris and meet him there and travel with him and many of his friends all over Switzerland and France. I am so glad I did now because how many of my friends can say that they got engaged on Lake Luzern in Switzerland! How romantic.
We were on the boat tour on the lake and we got off in Vitznau to go on a walk and check out some of the shops. We were walking in a gorgeous garden behind a 5 star hotel when David asked his friend Marcus to go down to the next bridge and take a few pictures of us. Marcus took one of us standing together and then David yelled down to him to wait and take one more. Then, David got down on one knee! I don't even remember what all he said because I was immediately crying and saying YES!
I keep telling him that one of these days he will have to take me back to that 5 star hotel to stay because I don't plan to go back to Europe and stay in hostels again!
So, there you have it. I got engaged in Vitznau, Switzerland during Spring Break.
So tell me, when and where did your man propose?
