Yesteday was my birthday. I received the best birthday present in the world from Kurt. He asked me to marry him.
He had a very romantic evening planned out. He first took me to the Pagoda - a beautiful landmark in Reading. It rests on a mountain high above the city of Reading. It was quite windy and freezing, but we enjoyed our time of taking pictures and enjoying the beautiful views.
While waiting for the sun to set, Kurt suggested we go back to his car and wait. When we got back in the car, he handed me a beautifully-wrapped box.
My first gift was a hotel reservation for the night before the big Lancaster Quilt show. He wanted me to have a night away to be able to enjoy the quilt show. I am so excited. I will have complete peace and quiet for that night. Ahhhh...
Then, I had a smaller box to open. In that box was the most incredibly gorgeous engagement ring I have ever seen. I was speechless - something that doesn't happen very often. I gave him a kiss and he asked if that meant yes.
We then went back outside to watch the sunset and take a few more pictures. It was a beautiful sunset -- absoultely perfect for a romantic night.
When we left the Pagoda, we went to "Austins" a very nice restaurant. We had a wonderful time. Our waiter recognized our goofy grins and asked if we had just gotten engaged. I guess we were both so excited that the whole world could tell. It was very sweet. I am very blessed to have a man like Kurt in my life, and I am excited about spending the rest of my life with him.
