Hello ladies!!

We''re engaged! It happened on Valentine''s evening!

Here''s the story:

My SO just got back from Germany after months of living there, and I was up at his parent''s house visiting him for Valentine''s weekend. Valentines morning, I was sitting downstairs eating my breakfast in my PJs when he gave me my present- inside was a sweet card, some chocolate... and a small square jewelry box. Thinking this was "it", I slowly opened the box, and found a key inside. He told me that I had to hold on to the key for later, so I did. Later that afternoon, we went shopping and did a few other mundane things (all the while holding onto my key). That evening, we had rented a room at the Westin in Alexandria, VA. We left early to go get ready there. I took my time, made sure my makeup was perfect and curled my hair, and put on my fabulous red dress. We went down to the hotel bar and had a glass of wine and then took a cab to a fabulous French restaurant in the Old Towne. The food was WONDERFUL and we split a bottle of wine- listening to the violenist play around the restaurant. The table behind us had a beautiful bouquet of roses delivered, and I commented on how sweet it was. SO told me not to worry and that "my night had just begun."

After dinner, we took a cab back to the hotel and we went inside the room, where I found flowers and chocolate covered strawberries, a bottle of champagne, candles, a bed covered in rose petals, and a small metal mailbox with a lock on it. He lit the candles and asked me if I still had my key (which I did). He told me to open the lock on the mailbox. I found a letter inside and he told me to read it. It was a very sweet note and at the end it said, "Look up, because I just have one more question to ask you." That''s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was crying so hard that I couldn''t even see the ring! But, he had a CD player in the room too and we danced and drank champagne together. I was TRULY the most perfect engagement I could have imagined.

The funny thing is, I told him not to propose to me on Valentine''s because I thought that it was cliche'', but by the end of the night, I was really hoping that he would b/c the night had been so perfect, and he did! I couldn''t be happier!

Enjoy the pictures!!

Amanda.Rx Congratulations!!!! I am a very part-time lurker on LIW, but read your story and just had to respond!

I got engaged at a Westin, too, here in Detroit! So funny, all Westins must look just the same, because your engagement pics look JUST like mine (right down to the lamps at the bedside).

Your ring is beautiful, congratulatons again!!!
