Will you marry me?


He came over to our table in the Eiffel Tower restaurant surreptitiously and whispered, "Hi, we're from Germany. I'm going to ask my girlfriend to marry me. Would you take a picture of me proposing?"

Well, who could say "No" to that?

So, he proposed and I took a picture. She said "Yes!" Everyone applauded.

And they lived happily ever after. We hope.

THAT'S SOOOO SWEEEET! When did you go to Paris?

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - Thank you. We were in Paris in June of 2007 celebrating our 50th anniversary.

And I want to thank you for the beautiful award...but I haven't been able to do anything with it yet as I lost the Internet for much of today and I'm playing catch-up...

I'll get it tomorrow.

Thanks again!
