SO how did he
I was on my
3-month long BIOC course at Fleet School in Quebec City, with only one week
left to go. I had decided to stay in
QC for Easter Weekend, so Luc's sister, Brigitte,
called from Montreal to ask if I wanted
to have lunch with her on the Friday afternoon.
We agree, through voicemail, to
meet in the lobby of the Chateau Frontenac, so that we can easily
find each other.
Friday arrives and itís a beautiful day, so I head out a little early to
enjoy the sun and warm weather. Believe me, the sun is
revered after a Quebec winter! And Luc had spent three months rubbing
in the fact that Victoria's 'winter' had nothing to do with cold and snow.
As I turned the corner around the Chateau
on the boardwalk, my cell phone rang and it
"Hey there. I am just at the Frontenac now. Its beautiful out so I came a
bit early to meet your sister."
"Nice. Its really beautiful here too..."
"Stop right there. I donít want to hear about any 18C weather in Victoria.
Its sunny here but not that warm yet...."
Then I turned around. And there he was. Looking ravishing in his suit and
tie, waltzing up to me with his cell phone at his ear.
I ran over and gave him a huge hug and kiss, so happy he
was there. But completely in shock. Then,
he pulled out a ring box
and nearly blinded me with a brilliantly sparkling
diamond ring, and proposed.
I said yes of course, and we had a wonderful weekend together. It was
fabulous. He had booked a room at the Chateau were we lived like royalty for
two days - room service, 5 course dinner in the Chateau restaurant (he had
even packed a dress and shoes for me!!!), and a whole lot of "us" time.
But of course, then he was
back to Victoria, while I
dragged myself through my last week on the course before heading home
to Victoria to pack for two weeks in Spain. He was originally going to
propose in Spain, but felt it was too predictable. And besides, Quebec City
was where we fell in love almost two years ago, so it was only fitting.
I could tell you more, but those are the private details, so I will leave it
there. Regardless, we were and still are thrilled.
And now, the wedding approaches.....
