Exciting Life Developments

Yesterday was probably the best birthday I've ever had. When I arrived at work late after a dentist appointment, I found a dozen red roses and a box with a gift certificate for a massage and a manicure on my desk. Upon further inspection, I found my massage and manicure had been scheduled for THAT AFTERNOON! AND that Shawn had arranged with my boss for me to leave early. So I left work early and had a wonderful massage and manicure and hurried home for our dinner. Shawn took me out to The Chop House for my birthday dinner and it was SO GOOD. Then we went to a park near his condo to watch the sunset. It was there that he PROPOSED and we got engaged! It was so wonderful!

We actually didn't stay to watch the actual sunset because it was so hot. Then we went back to his condo for what I thought was some raspberry sorbet. Instead, I was surprised to find a whole group of our friends waiting there for a surprise birthday/engagement party!What a wonderful birthday! :)
