Bill proposed on November 11th, 2011. So lucky 11-11-11 which also happened to be our 9 month anniversary. He took me to the restaurant in Kirkwood where we went on our first date. We were walking to the restaurant and we got to the corner where there is a very romantic bench with flowers. He turned towards me, smiled and got down on one knee and asked, "Will you marry me?" Then he put the most beautiful ring that I had ever seen on my ring finger, after I said yes of course. The ring was designed and hand made especially for us. It has a beautiful sapphire with two diamonds that have been in Bill's mother's family for 130 years.
