I picked up my fiancée Chelsea from her house, and we went to Rose Marie's, an intimate Italian restaurant, for a 5:00 pm dinner reservation in Bloomsburg. We each had bow-tie pasta with shrimp, lobster and scallops topped with an orange wine sauce. It was delicious. After dinner, we left and went to the Cinema Center to see the movie "Dan in Real Life. " We purchased our tickets and walked into the lobby, where Chelsea began to comment on the movie posters. Chelsea said she wanted something to drink, so we walked over to where the line would have been for the concession stand.
I turned around and looked Chelsea in the eyes. I said, "You probably don't realize this, but it was seven years ago today when I stood in this line, and I turned around and saw your face for the very first time. There was something in your eyes that told me you were special. From that point forward, you became my friend and then my best friend. One year, ten months and nineteen days ago, I fell in love with the love of my life. Now I want to know if you'll spend the rest of your life with me. " I got down on one knee, pulled out the ring and asked her to marry me. She asked if I had requested her father's permission, and I told her I did. She said yes!
