Rory and I decided to celebrate our Christmas together early this year. We woke up and Rory made me a wonderful breakfast, I should've known something was up from the start because he NEVER does the cooking! We opened all of our presents to each other and Rory told me I had one last surprise present and that I needed to pack an overnight bag for it.
We started driving and he had me open my last present and it was reservations to The Salish Lodge and Spa at Snoqualmie Falls (Washington). Rory had never been there before so we spent the day exploring the grounds and taking in the gorgeous view. Later in the day he had made us spa appointments to have massages, once again should've known something was up but I was absolutely clueless.
It was then time for dinner and on our way walking to dinner he said "hey lets go in here for a second, I heard it has a great view" we walked in a room covered in rose petals and a bottle of champagne in the corner, he then took me out on a balcony overlooking the falls and got down on one knee and I started crying and saying yes before he even finished talking! We then had champagne and headed to dinner. Everyone in the restaurant knew we had just gotten engaged and congratulated us as we walked in, I felt like it was a scene in a movieâ€¦it was so romantic and very Jocelyn if you know what I mean! Yippee, I canâ€™t wait to be Mrs. Hawkins!
