    Dustin is in the military and was on tour in Afghanistan last year. It was very hard for me while he was gone, to say the least. In May 2007, we met up in Europe for 4 wonderful weeks during his leave from tour. We went on a tour of Europe and it was the most amazing trip ever!! We went through most of Western Europe. He knew though that I was looking most forward to Venice and it was one of the last cities we were going to see together.

    It was very dissapointing because the day we were in Venice, it flooded! The city was pretty much shut down because of all the heavy rain! That didn't stop us though, we bought these cheap green ponchos and decided to wander the city. It was basically a ghost town!

    We were down by the canals and the sun was beggining to set. It was bitter sweet for me, because it was a such a beautiful city and we were having such an amazing time; however, it was one of our last days together before he had to go back to Afghanistan. It was so beautiful to seeing the rain hit the water while the sun was setting, it was like a dream! It was like we were the only ones in the whole city. I remember asking Dustin if he thought this could get any better...and at that moment he got down on one knee he told me that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me!!

    I was in shock and just began to cry...and I couldn't stop. It was the most amazing moment and feeling in my life!
