      I proposed to my Fiancée only July 7th 2012 on our 3 year anniversary. We first have lunch at a patio restaurant on yonge st. Then we went to Casaloma. We first took a walk about the flower garden. We ended up at the gazebo. There I went down on one knee. I remember fumbling with the speech. I popped the question, she said yes. We hugged. Instead of putting the ring on her finger, I froze. she had to shake me to get me to put the ring on her finger.

      We will be getting married in punta Cana on July 3rd 2012.
