As it is the week of love, why not talk more about it? Love should be always in the air. It’s everything so much prettier when there’s love inside.
"Love, love me do
You know I love you
I'll always be true
So please... love me do" (The Beatles)
Back in our trip to Las Vegas I was thinking: “Who in this entire world would imagine that the famous sin city, the splendorous Las Vegas could be romantic?” I wouldn’t! But my knight shining armour, Daniel, made my Vegas the most romantic trip ever.
To start with, as he arrived a few hours earlier than me, he prepared some surprises. When I finally got to our hotel, he started: Champagne… chocolates… I should’ve known there was something special happening. But for me, just to be in Vegas was special enough to celebrate! Who would think…
I was so excited with everything that I completely forgot about my tiredness over a 15 hour flight.
So we started with Champagne. “Let’s warm up for Vegas night” pass through my mind. And there he came… with my eyes banded, he went down his knees, holding a beautiful red rose with a diamond ring inside: “Will you marry me?”
“WHAT???” I replied! And he was on his knees still, holding the rose, looking at me. Oh my Goodness!!! Is it true? Is this real life? I didn’t believe it. Does anyone believe it at first time? I started laughing and crying and he had to propose again: “Will you marry me, sweetheart?” And I could finally say something: YES! Yes I will!
That was the most magic moment! I would yell to the entire world that I’m engaged!! Just like Monica of ’Friends’ did it:
So, we went to celebrate in Vegas… ‘Cause, you know. We were in Vegas, babe. And we were just engaged! And that was so exciting!
The awkward moment came when I felt like shouting loud to the whole world that I was engaged, but I had no phoooooooone!! I just had internet access back in the hotel and there was so much to do out there, plus the time zone was all different that I could not find my mother to tell her everything about it!
That’s the rose. That’s the Champagne. And the ring is right here on my finger!
Oh Vegas!! From that day, we are now bride & groom.
I’m still super excited with this idea. Every time he says for someone else: “That’s my fiancée”, I got butterflies in my stomach… I’d say, butterflies everywhere!
