I landed around 3pm from New Orleans and met my handsome man at the baggage claim. He was pretty persistent we be in an uber for a walk around DC and dinner by 5:30. Of course, I was a little late. So he helped me curl my hair and we rushed out the door. The day was perfect, not too hot and clear skies . As we reached the memorial, we walked up the steps holding hands and approached this spot with this gorgeous view of the monument and capitol. The sun was setting and the sky was turning pink. I said let’s take a selfie. I turned to look at the view once more and when I turned back around, he was on one knee. It was perfect and he is perfect.
The Lincoln Memorial already held a special place in my heart because it’s where my fiancé and I (then boyfriend) walked hand in hand during my first visit to DC. Now it will always hold a special place in my heart!!
