Brett planned a secret getaway for the two of us and did not tell me where we were going until we got in the car. He planned a trip up to the picturesque town of Solvang. When we arrived we got ready for a nice steak dinner in town. After our dinner, we strolled through the town that was covered in twinkling lights. Just about the time I was ready to go back, Brett pulled me into a gazebo in the park. He said, "You know I love you right? You know I want to spend the rest of my life with you right?" To which I responded "Are you doing what I think you're doing?" He pulled out a ring and got on one knee and asked me to marry him and I said yes. There was crying and then a lot of excited bouncing up and down as we enjoyed the stroll back to our car. We got to spend the next day enjoying our new engagement first walking through Solvang in the daytime, then stopping in Santa Barbara and Ventura on our way back home.
