Rodrigo proposed after three and a half years of dating on a Valentine's Day weekend getaway to San Diego. He proposed at our favorite restaurant in Old Town San Diego with a mariachi group playing a song at our table. He pulls out a small box from his pocket and his exact words were "Will you be my wife?" Of course I said "yes!" This is a picture of us at the restaurant the night we got engaged.
Rodrigo and I met at my place of employment. I was his son's preschool assistant teacher. At first we had a teacher parent relationship that soon turned into something else when he started walking me to my truck after school when ever he would pick up his son from school. On the last week of school he asked me for my phone number. I gave it to him, he called and that same weekend we went out on our first date.
Rodrigo is always leaving me love notes with flowers, everywhere and anywhere. I have a drawer full of them. This is one of those notes with a picked flower and a piece of chocolate.
