“It was a cool August night, Alex and I were going out for a dinner date which we typically did once a week. We went to Folino Estates, which is where we were supposed to go for our first anniversary. I got dressed up all cute and did not suspect anything. As we were leaving, Alex suggest we take a walk through the vineyard. But then it started to down pour. I suggested we go wait in the car for it to pass. Alex suggested we just go home because it was not supposed to pass quickly. As we were heading home I started to think if I just possibly ruined his proposal but thought that would be crazy if I did. We pulled into a parking spot right outside of our apartment. I got out of the car and there he was on one knee asking me to marry him. I was in total shock. I started to cry and just kept looking at the ring. Of course I said yes and we went inside to dry off from the rain and call all of our family members! I later learned that he had asked my dad for permission to marry me and had been waiting all day for this dinner to ask me to spend the rest of my life with him! In just a short few months we will be celebrating being married for 1 year!”
