So yesterday, my girlfriend was up marking the provincial assessments for Grade 4 French Immersion (Writing). I decided to come up and visit (it's a little over an hour away) and take her out to supper. I arrived at her hotel room with a rose in hand and gave it to her... she was very happy, and then I mentioned that I had something else to give her too... At this point, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. And she said YES! I am officially engaged!
