Kelly surprised me over Valentine's Day weekend and took me to Paris for a romantic getaway! He came over on Thursday afternoon and handed me a card which said, "Get ready for an adventure. You have 30 minutes to pack. " Of course he wouldn't tell me where it would be, and I had no idea that we were going away and that he had made all of these plans months in advance! He even went through the trouble of taking my passport without telling me, so I wouldn't even know we were leaving the country! When we got to the airport, we got into the line for Air India, and he had me thinking we were going to Mumbai the entire time we were waiting. I didn't know where we were going until we got to the ticket counter. I was so excited when the ticket agent told me we would be going to Paris! He really had me fooled.
Paris is my favorite city in the world and somewhere I have dreamed of getting engaged my entire life! On the first night I met Kelly, he asked me my favorite city in the world, and I told him Paris. I just couldn't believe he had remembered two and a half years later. We got to Paris on Friday morning and spent the day hanging out and sightseeing. That night after dinner, we decided to go for a walk to the Eiffel Tower. The sky was clear, and the tower was all lit up and looked so beautiful, just like a candle! It was then that Kelly set his camera up on the tripod and put the timer on to take several pictures of us in front of the tower. He was so relaxed and calm about everything that I never suspected a thing. During one of the pictures, he got down on one knee and proposed! It was so beautiful, and it was the happiest moment of my life. The picture I have is of the exact moment he proposed, and it was perfect. I will cherish it forever. We then got to spend the rest of the weekend enjoying our engagement bliss in Paris.
