We were travelling back to the west coast to have Christmas with my family. We went a few days early and had I had booked a night up in the mountains in Leavenworth WA, just to decompress, play in the snow, etc. Leavenworth is a bavarian village, up in the mountains - so cute, so romantic. If you ever get the chance, go!
Little did I know that my FI had contacted the innkeeper, (love the Abendblume, Renee is so great!) and had arranged the whole proposal.
We arrived and got settled in, went to dinner, wandered thru the village. When we got back to the inn, FI wouldn't let me play in the snow - only one snow angel!! I'm thinking he's being a total grinch...
We go upstairs to our room - which has a big fire going in the fire place, wine waiting for us, Christmas music playing. We're having a glass of vino, snuggling on the sofa when FI shuts off the music, and tells me that he wants to watch SportsCenter (!!!!!). Then he says "do you hear that?" and goes out on the balcony. How fabulous!!! Carolers!! And they proceed to sing all of my favorite Christmas songs!
When they are done, Renee (the innkeeper) turns on a sign - "Rebecca Marry Me?" in Christmas lights, out in the field, with 3 feet of snow to reflect the lights (see pic below). He actually had them build it for me! I burst into tears, he got down on one knee, it was fantastic!
And, because all good stories have a punchline, while we're out on the balcony, we've left the door open and reversed the draft in the fireplace. One of the carolers asked if I said yes. My FI replies "Good news is she said yes... bad news is that we've set off the fire alarm!"
Oh, and the quote in my signature? It's Romans 8:19. It was painted on the wall in the inn. How perfect is that?!
Happily married since 2008
