I'm sure most of you have already heard, but if not, I'M ENGAGED!!! Philip proposed to me on my birthday, January 27th. He took me to the Westin, where he had kissed me for the first time over a year ago after I beat him in Shuffleboard :) When we first arrived we ordered a glass of wine and went out to the firepit. There he gave me my birthday present, a sweet book of all the reasons he loves me, complete with illustrations! He then said that my golden birthday (27 on the 27th) wouldn't be complete without a little gold :) So he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. And of course my answer was YES!!! We called our parents, and I found out my dad already knew since Phil had asked for his blessing before proposing to me. We then went in and had a wonderful dinner at Deseo, along with a fabulous bottle of wine and dessert. I couldn't have asked for a better birthday celebration. Not only the start to a new year, but a new life with Phil as well.
