Robert proposed to me in Santa Barbara, California. It was my birthday weekend, so I thought that he took me to Santa Barbara only for a birthday celebration. Saturday morning he gave me all my presents (he always spoils me!) and told me we had a fun day ahead of us. We went wine tasting and walking around the beach, it was a great day. That evening he took me to a very nice French restaurant and we had a great dinner. When we got back to the hotel, we took the elevator up and when we got to our floor he said "This is as far as you go" and he asked me to wait in the hallway while he ran to our room to get us some coats. He said that we were going to head up to the roof of the hotel for a while to enjoy the stars (it was about 11:30 pm at this point). When we got to the roof, I knew something was up - not and engagement thing, but I thought he had another birthday surprise waiting for me. I guess while I was in the shower earlier that day, he contacted the concierge of the hotel and told them his plans (that he was going to propose) and asked them to make sure no one was allowed on the roof. As promised, we were all alone. They had the outdoor fireplace lit and a couple of glasses of champagne waiting. Robert and I sat down by the fire and he handed me another card - a birthday card. But inside it he simply put that he had one more present for me that he hoped would make it the most memorable birthday of my life. At that point he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was amazing. To top it off, the whole reason why he didn't want me to go into the room is that he had the hotel staff decorate it for us. After about 30 minutes on the roof of laughing and crying, we headed down to our room. When I opened the door, there were red rose petals everywhere, candles lit, and music playing. He really did make it my most memorable birthday ever.
As far as my name, and I guess it's fitting right now, it means "happiness". It's a Hebrew name translated into Spanish.
We decided on Playa del Carmen because we knew that we wanted to honeymoon there (we had pretty much decided on the location of the honeymoon about a year ago!) and decided why not get married there? My family lives in San Diego and his lives in Kansas City and so rather than choose favorites, we decided to go somewhere else altogether.
Wow, I have really said more than my fair share!!!
