You might already know how the proposal went if you’ve been following our blog.  But here’s a summary of everything that happened for those who want to hear the story. Dusty and I went on a two-week vacation to Europe, starting in Copenhagen, then going to Berlin and Hamburg and ending in Paris. We did everything, tours, bikes, boats, World Cup games, site-seeing, cafes, amusement park rides, and lots of walking. While in Paris, on day twelve of our trip, we toured the Orsay Museum in the morning and went to the Rodin museum in the afternoon. For lunch we went to the Latin Quarter, where there a lot of cafes and imbisses (fastfood places). We ate by the Seine and watched the riverboats. Later in the afternoon we visited Napoleon’s Tomb, and went to Rue Cler for people watching and wine drinking at Cafe du Marche.

Later in the evening we went back to the shops of Rue Cler to pick up food for our picnic, something we had wanted to do since we started planning the trip almost a year ago. We went to Top Halles Fruits and Vegetables for strawberries, Boulangerie for bread and a chocolate dessert, Wine Bacchus for a bottle of wine and champagne, Fromagerie for different cheeses, and La Maison du Jambon for salami. After rushing to get food before all of the small shops closed for the evening we walked to the Eiffel Tower. We found a great place on the lawn looking up at the Eiffel Tower.

We had a nice dinner along with some French wine. Eventually the sun went down and the lights of the Eiffel Tower turned on. It was a perfect night. Ending the wonderful evening, Dusty asked me to marry him and I said YES! It was an amazing ending to a perfect day.
