Roberto called me up just two days ago asking if I’d be there while he proposed to his fiancee, Meriem, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in DC, and of course, I immediately told him that I would be thrilled to do it. What’s even more amazing is that I actually managed to stay incognito while waiting on the steps and texting Roberto as they were walking up just 20 feet away from me, and as Roberto tried to lead Meriem to a slightly less packed area of the monument, and finally, with her leaning against a column, read her a handwritten letter he had prepared just for the occasion and got down on one knee.
I absolutely love her initial reaction ~ and big hug, and second hug, hugs all around! It’s the best feeling in the world to see people this happy!
Congratulations, you two! :)
