The Proposal

"Joe surprised me with a weekend getaway to The Vineyard Retreat in Mclaren Vale. The whole weekend Joe made me feel like a movie star, starting with the first night being wined and dined at Mitolo Wines for a fancy meal...or seven! After dinner, we headed back to the retreat. Joe held my hand and guided me inside and to my surprise, I noticed rose petals scattered everywhere, two lit up letter signs of 'J' & 'C', a big love heart and a CD player. Long story short, I made Joe a mix tape/CD in high school as we have always liked the same music (this was about 10 years ago) and he brought the CD with him and played our song whilst getting on one knee. OF COURSE I said 'YES'! The best night of my life. We then enjoyed the rest of our stay in McLaren Vale as an engaged couple feeling very much smitten and could not stop staring at my ring."
