So will you?

John asked me to marry him!!! As you already know, this weekend we took a trip to the south of Germany. We stayed in Garmisch, which is a small town in the mountains, at a lodge called Edelweiss. We made the 5-hour drive Friday, setting out around 3. When we arrived at 8, we got checked in and hurried down to dinner because we were rather hungry. We had a fancy dinner at the lodge restaurant with steak and red wine.

After dinner, I was pretty stuffed and just in the mood to relax. We went back to the room and, being tired and stuffed from dinner, I promptly took off my shoes and laid down on the bed. John sat on the nightstand next to the bed and started telling me a story about a time while he was in basic training, he had a dream that he had asked me to marry him. He pulled out a letter about the dream, which he had written in basic training and saved until now, and read it to me. Then he asked me to sit up and moved over to the bed and sat down next to me. He told me that he loved me very much, and then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I don’t really remember what he said exactly, but I do remember that at the end he couldn’t even finish what he was saying… the question came out “so will you?” I was very giggly, but I said “of course,” and I hugged him. Then John said “don’t you want to see the ring?” and opened the box that he had been holding in his hand. He put it on me, and I thought it was beautiful.

A few minutes later, I glanced down at my hand and exclaimed “OH THAT’S WEIRD!” and immediately sat on my left hand. Two days later, however, I will say that I am definitely getting used to it. I really like the way it sparkles too.

I have a lot more to say about this weekend, but I figured this was enough for one night. I will write about our weekend adventures in another entry tomorrow. Now for the pictures people always ask to see!
