For my 23rd birthday Eric surprised me with not only some hair care products, a homemade cake, and an AeroGarden, but with a proposal! Here is the quick story:
We went to Faneuil Hall and got on a horse-drawn carriage. It drove us around for a long time before stopping at the Public Gardens. The driver said we had to get out and walk through to the other side so he could give his horse some water. We walked into the Gardens and down by the pond area where Eric asked me to marry him and produced the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen. I cried. We got back on the carriage and were met with sparkling cider to sip on the ride back to Faneuil Hall. From there we walked to the North End for a lovely Italian dinner. On the way home we stopped at a hotel where his parents were staying for Easter weekend and shared the news with them.
Thanks to everyone who has expressed their excitement!
