How They Asked
Paul told me that we had to attend the “Press Association Dinner”. Oh boy! I was dreading it. The last thing I wanted to do after the holidays was to get dressed up and attend a gala where I knew nobody and it was freezing cold outside. Paul owns popular pop up bars in Washington DC. He mentioned that we had to make a stop before heading to the event because we needed to grab a bottle of Vintage champagne for someone that was apart of the press association. The pop up bars were closed because they were Christmas themed and the holidays were over. Paul guided me through the back entrance of the bars, it was pitch dark. I made my way down the hallway and saw a glow around the doorway. As I walked through the door I shouted “what is this?” After nearly eight years of dating, Paul bent down to one knee and asked me to be his wife. He proposed with an engraved 1941 ring. I squeaked yes! Sixty five family members waited quietly in the room next door only to surprise me yet again with a big congratulations engagement party. Best day of my life.
