    And I've never been so surprised in my life.

    Actually he intended to do it 2 weeks prior on a trip to Las Vegas. We went to see the Cirque du Soleil show called Love, and his plan was to do it at intermission, only there was no intermission. Oops. And the next night just wasn't the right setting.

    So 2 weeks later we went to Puerto Rico for a short vacation. One night we went out to a nice dinner, and when we came back to our hotel we were walking around the tropical garden on the grounds. He was standing on a bridge and when I walked over to him he got down on one knee, told me he loved me, and asked me to marry him.

    I seriously do not know how long I cried before I could even answer him, but somehow I pulled myself together and said YES!!

    We are going to be married in PR next year, date and location TBD. wow!

      That sounds awesome!

      Where in PR were you?
      Any ideas on where you want to get married in PR?

      Just curious because me and my wife Karen are all about PR.

            He actually proposed in the tropical garden at the Caribe Hilton where we were staying - very nice!

            We dont know abt the wedding yet, but I am going down next month to scout some locations. We are looking at the El San Juan and the Intercontinental, and at least one other place (undetermined as of today).

            I thought about the resorts closer to El Yunque, but I decided it would be easier for my guests to be near the airport, and they can venture out on their own.

            I took a couple of weeks after I got engaged to sort of adjust to the whole thing, and I'm glad I did because I was really stressed. Now it's sinking in and it's going to be great.
