favorite pic Our first date was at O’Charley’s Restaurant in Springfield on March 21st, 2009.  We both knew instantly there was a real connection.  Every day since that first meeting we have spoke or been together.  

Two years ago we started looking at rings even though the official proposal had not happened.  Tab would say “If I wanted to surprise you what would you like?”  Over two years after the first visit to Denney’s I was still waiting for that “surprise”.

We had planned a trip to Las Vegas for Tab’s 60th birthday on April 24th, 2013.  The entire trip was supposed to focus on his big day.  We arrived in Vegas on the 23rd of April and decided to take a romantic walk to the Bellagio Fountains.  During the walk Tab said “There’s only one thing I want for my birthday.”.  I was in almost a state of panic wondering what it could possibly be since the trip and tickets to Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club was supposed to be his birthday present.  

At 10:38 p.m. we stood in front of  the beautiful fountains while Lee Greenwood’s song “I’m Proud to be an American”  played.  Tab asked, “Do you know what I really want for my birthday?”   I turned to look at him as he pulled out a box and said “for you to be my wife.”  I couldn’t had been more surprised. We made our way from the fountains to the extraordinary garden inside the Bellagio where Tab got on one knee and asked the official question “Will you marry me?”   So, overcome with emotion I could verily say “Yes”.

It was truly the most romantic experience in my life.  He not only has gave me a gorgeous ring but a beautiful story to tell for the rest of our lives.
