The Date 1/19/08
The Place Boston Common, MA
Vinny and I decided to go to Boston for a little get away trip. On that Saturday, we decided to walk around Boston Common. After about 2 hours of walking around, I was eagered to go to another place. Vinny said we should take one more lap around. I said okay. Then we walked up this white gazebo and he took my hand. He told me to take my gloves off. As I was removing my gloves, Vinny reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a ring. He got down on one knee and I knew then that he was going to propose. I was litterally shaking. I asked him a couple of times if he was serious and he said yes. I then quickly said yes. I was so happy. We then sat on a park bench for about 10 minutes. The both of us were crying. It was so perfect. We then called all our family and friends. Most of them already knew because Vinny asked my parents for permission 2 weeks earlier. Everyone was so happy for us.
The diamond is from his mom's engagement ring.
