And they lived happily ever after
Even though I am mega uber busy, I still had time to eek out a post for y'all. You guys remember my Valentine's Day surprise? Well, I might have left a teensy, weensy part out:
So let's see, where were we? Oh, that's right, stopped at the bottom of the Eiffel tower so I could take a few pictures. As I was taking them, C started tugging on my coat. I was all "Dude, look at this view! I need to take a million pictures!", until C finally said "SAM!" with a note of urgency in his voice.
At which point I finally turned around and saw him down on bended knee. He did not waste any time, going straight to the point by saying "Veux-tu m'epouser?" After a moment of shock in which time seemed to stand still, I said a big fat OUI. How could I say Non to the man who went to extreme lengths to combine three of the things I love most? It was almost a surreal feeling - there I was, on a boat in the middle of the Seine, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, getting proposed to. That sh*t only happens in movies!
We sat there with ridiculous grins on our faces for a few minutes, but since you're not really supposed to stop moving on the Seine, it was soon time to fire up the boat again. But not before C busted out the bottle of Champagne and the macarons he had snuck onto the boat:
Looking back at my pictures now, I have to smile at this view - what a perfect image for our life to come:And then we really did make our way back to Bastille, all the while watching the sunset over Paris:
