The day of my 27th birthday started out pretty gloomy: it was snowing, sleeting and raining. All I could think about was that my birthday dinner with my fiancé at a "secret " location was going to get cancelled. Although the weather was pretty treacherous, we went out and braved the elements so he could take me to this local bistro. The only thing I noticed was that it was connected to a local theatre, but nothing hit me yet. Just after ordering our meal, he placed an envelope on the table with tickets to see the play "Cinderella, " which I had been dying to see since the summer.
After dinner, just as we were about to arrive home, he took a turn and told me he had one more place to take me but that I had to close my eyes. Once we arrived, he guided me through this walkway that was covered in snow and led me into a gazebo. The gazebo was all lit up with Christmas lights and there was a bright Christmas tree in the center of it. With the ground covered in snow, he got down on his knee, asked me to uncover my eyes and proposed. I can't quite remember the exact words, but all I know is that I cried and said, "Absolutely! "
