It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the Christmas lights, the caroling, and the warm feeling everyone has this time of year. One of my favorite things to do is walk the Riverwalk and look at the lights, so this past weekend that is just what we did.

Our original plan was to spend two days on the Riverwalk and enjoy Sunday brunch at the Omni Hotel. This was the weekend of my mom and dad’s 26th anniversary, so we were celebrating that as well as enjoying the river carolers and the beautiful lights and decorations. Little did I know, my boyfriend had bigger plans.

On Friday I got all dressed up because Nick was taking me out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. Dinner went on as normal until dessert came. When dessert was delivered, Nick asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes! Everyone around us congratulated us and the restaurant delivered a bottle of champagne to celebrate. What a fabulous addition to an already exciting weekend.

So now we are planning a wedding here at The Heart for October! There is so much to be done! I can’t wait to really get started on the planning!  And just in case you’re wondering, I AM NOT leaving The Heart once we are married! Nick will make the commute from Hunt to Fredericksburg! Yippee!
