Although we were planning the wedding for several months, my FI never officially got to propose until Christmas day, 2009. He had asked my parents permission, and even bought a ring, but he had to return to Korea rather suddenly. So he never got to propose. He offered to propose over Skype, but I just really didn't want that at all. I didn't want to tell my children that their father proposed over the internet. I just didn't. lol!
So I arrived in Korea on Christmas morning after being apart for over 5 months, and that night he took me to one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever been to. It's called Toh Lim, and it's on the top floor of the Lotte World Hotel in Seoul. You can take the observatory elevator up, that lets you look out over the whole city, and once we got there, the entry way and halls were lined with lots of fresh red rose petals and glass globes with floating candles. There were rose petals and candles everywhere in the restaurant.
Our table was by these huge windows that looked out over the city, and it was beautiful. We had an amazing eight course meal, and although it wasn't a surprise by any means when he pulled out the ring and asked me to marry him, it was still so special. I can't even remember everything he said to me, I was just so happy that I could finally be officially engaged to my sweety, to finally see him again after 5 long months on the other side of the world, and to finally wear my beautiful ring. Here are a couple pictures of the restaurant (our table, and the really cool ceiling), and one of me outside by all the pretty twinkly lights wearing my loverly ring. :)

Such an amazing story :)
I love it when long distant relationships work out for the better.
