Mike took me ice-skating yesterday. For a few weeks now he's been talking about going ice-skating and we were both free yesterday afternoon so off we went. We decided to go downtown to Rosa Parks Circle. It was only Mike's second time skating and it has been a while since I have ice-skated. It took us a few rounds to get used to it and before we knew it we were skating like pros! (Yeah right...but we can dream!) It was the absolute perfect day for skating, 40 degrees, blue skies and sunny. Our ankles were getting sore so we decided to take a break.
One neat thing about Rosa Parks Circle is that they have an outdoor sound system so there is music going that we can skate to. As we are taking our rest, our song came on the radio! I looked at Mike and we were like, it's our song!!! So of course we had to skate to it.
So off we went...some of the ice was melting a bit so we avoided those areas around the edges. Mike steered me closer and closer to the center ice, I finally asked why we in the center because we were skating in a line instead of a circle. He said, I'm ready for another break, let's stop here a minute. Okay, so we stopped. Look over there, there's snowflakes in the window! Mike pointed to a building behind me. I turned back to him and he said, I think God's trying to tell me something, and proceeded to get down on one knee! Melissa, will you marry me? YES!
A lady there was nice enough to take our picture. We decided to stop skating and walk around downtown so we could start making plans. We are very excited to start planning the wedding and can't wait to get married!!!
