Roman Proposal - A Year Ago Today

Rose at the Spanish Steps near our Hotel
I can't believe it has been a year already!   So much has changed, I hardly feel like the same person.    I think that is a good thing.     

John and I had just arrived in Rome (a surprise trip for me!) and were wandering around jet lagged taking it all in.     It was a whirlwind weekend of a trip, highlighted by a very romantic proposal following dinner at my favorite restaurant.    A year ago today!

Thought I'd share a few images from our proposal weekend in Italy.   Brings back lots of wonderful memories.

Would love to hear about your proposal.   These are always the best stories!   I have to say that John did surprise me with this one.    I wanted something romantic, but certainly wasn't expecting this.    He likes to say that he earned lots of points for this one.   (I tend to agree. )


  1. I'm still waiting for mine! One of these days the boyfriend will propose and then I will share! Your proposal and trip look absolutely amazing!! :)

  2. My Jon put the ring in my stocking and I opened it Christmas Eve before we went to see family. {I sort of knew it was coming, because he kept asking when we were going to do the stockings, and saying that I might want something in there before we saw our families.} It was still super sweet!

  3. How lovely...enjoyed your photos. We were there last April and I'm dying to go again...maybe someday!!

    How romantic!!!

  4. Thanks for you comments!

    Brittany - Waiting is the hardest part... but sooo worth it!
    jdavis - I LOVE your story. I think that is so romantic.
    Meeling - Seems like we might have been in Rome at same time last year. I was there mid April through mid May. It is such a wonderful city...


Thanks so much for your comments! I love hearing from you and read each and every one!
