It turns out choosing to go to Café Rio instead, turned out to be a great idea, as we continued to date each other throughout the following months. In February 2011, Steve proposed, I would like to say it was something I didn’t see coming, but I would be lying; I had been pushing Steve to propose for quite some time. I was down at school for Valentine’s Day, so we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day and my birthday in the same weekend. Our day first began with an early lunch to Café Rio. After lunch He said the plan was to go play rugby and I complained the ENTIRE way to the park, it was raining, there was like a foot on snow on the field and I promised him we could play when it was warm, but none of it worked. When we got to the park I noticed that Steve had left the rugby ball in car. Steve then told
me that we weren’t really going to be playing rugby, but instead He was going to give me my birthday present and of course my spirits lightened. He then told me to close my eyes and when I opened them, there Steve was on one knee and He asked me to marry him. We then spent the rest of the day going miniature golfing, eating, and reenacting every date we had ever been on. It was definitely a day to remember.
