When we were done eating Phil came to sit by me and pulled a little wrapped gift out of his pocket. "This is for you, but open it carefully."
I unwrapped a little book . . . as I opened the cover I started to realize that this was a very unique book. Phil had written the story of our dating experience. It was witty and charming. But, not only had he written up the highlights of our years of dating he had figured out how to paginate the page segments, sew them to the binding, create the cover and publish the entire thing from scratch! He was even very careful to make sure that he used all acid free products so that the book would be preserved over time. It is totally impressive. In a later post I will document the process he went through, as he was good enough to document his efforts with pictures. :)
This is me opening the book.
It is so beautiful. He took the ring out of the book and knelt down . . . right there in the restaurant! I said yes, of course! He gave me a hug and said, "We're getting married!" "It's about time," I responded. :)
Room where we got engaged. Our adorable waiter took this picture!
Beautiful blown glass chandelier, Tuscany entry way. Below are some more glamour shots of the ring! I am so blessed. Phil is the best guy I have ever known. He is so patient with my flaws and makes me feel like a gorgeous and dynamic woman. I am so in love, and I have the distinct impression that I am only scratching the surface of how in love I will fall with Phil.
