For our first date we met at the local art museum. There was a special exhibition of Grant Woods work including American Gothic. Fast forward a little over a year and we were going away for a weekend but he wouldn’t tell me where. We left work early on a Friday and began a long drive to the middle of nowhere. Waking early to finish our drive, he made me go the rest of the way blindfolded. When he lead me from the car it was complete silence and I had no idea what was going on, the blindfold came off and he was on one knee with the ring. A volunteer with the historical society came and opened the house to give us a private tour and take our picture. We spent the rest of the day a few hours away in Chicago where he wined and dined me!
