This is the Short Version

The day: Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

The scenario: Jeff, Kati and I were going on an early sunrise hike, but because of the rain, we cancelled. 
So Kati and I decided to go to Oddfellow's for brunch instead. Fun, right?

The problem: I woke up that morning sicker than a dog. The nasty head cold I woke up to provided me with a migraine, which provided me with the nausea. BUT! I would prevail. I was determined. I hadn't spent time with her in months and I missed her! I had new music to show her! She had new music for me! I couldn't just cancel. I probably should've stayed in bed, but I knew I could come home and sleep the rest of the day. 

But what ended up happening that day was completely different and wonderful - a day I'll never, ever forget. 

Kati picked me up and drove me to Oddfellow's. 
While she was "parking", and I was "going in to get seats" I ran into this fine fellow.
(Kati, you sneak!) :)

The Fine Fellow

He hijacked my day. 
He put me on a boat.
And asked me if I would be his wife.

I said yes!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He hadn't realized I was so sick until I was actually on the boat looking for the best place to puke my guts out. Luckily I didn't! But the whole time he was so sweet and so understanding - and then eventually I could actually sit up and carry on a normal conversation. 

I started feeling better, and it ended up being the perfect day, just two best friends hanging out and in love.

I can't wait to be Mrs. Rose Kline.
