The Proposal


 When I woke up on August 23rd, Kurt had brought me breakfast. While I was eating, he told me he had the car all packed and that we were going to Door County for the night. I was beyond excited because I LOVE Door County. For those of you know don't know, Door County is a huge tourist spot in Wisconsin... it is so beautiful and romantic. When we arrived, we went to lunch at a restaurant called Shiprwrecked (The building was built in the 1800's. It also happened to be one of Al Capone's favorite hideouts.)


After lunch, we went kayaking for two hours and the weather could not have been more perfect and calm for our little adventure. Later on, we went on a bike ride, and swam in Lake Michigan. At night, we went to a drive in movie, one of our favorite Door County traditions. We closed the perfect night with a nice fire before bedtime!


I obviously was a bit suspicious of this surprise trip... thinking it would be such a perfect place to propose since Kurt and I have gone there together for special mini-vacations. However, no proposal happened that night, so I figured it wasn't going to happen since we were leaving the next day.  The next morning, we packed up the car and Kurt asked if I wanted to bike to the lighthouse before we left. I agreed, and it was a beautiful bike ride through the wooded trails. When we arrived to the lighthouse, it was a lot busier than we anticipated. We were sitting on a bench when Kurt asked if I wanted to see the other side of the lighthouse (which was very private). We walked over and stood in front of the 1800's lighthouse facing lake Michigan. Kurt began saying all of these amazing things about me and our relationship. He kissed me on the cheek and then bent down. When I looked down, he was  on one knee holding a grey box with a beautiful ring and asked, "Shanna, will you marry me?" I was so overwhelmed with emotion, I started to cry a little bit and I said- "Oh my god! Are you serious?!" He replied, "yes!" and I said "OF COURSE!" I felt so excited and over the moon that I will get  to marry my best friend in the whole world and get to be Mrs. Callahan! :)
