To celebrate our 9th anniversary of dating (can't believe how quickly the years have passed!), my man arranged a special date night for us. We started the night off at SkyView Atlanta, a brand new Ferris wheel downtown that's almost 20 stories high. I adore carnival rides and roller coasters, so this was a fun way to kick off our date. Plus, it's so pretty and lit up at night.
We got our own gondola, and on the second time around while we were at the top... he proposed! I obviously said yes, hence this post, and totally cried happy tears. Then he told me that the ring was my grandmother's, which made it even more special and brought on more tears. We're both thrilled that it's now "official" after all these years!
After the ride ended, we walked over to the Westin for a fancy dinner out at the Sun Dial Restaurant, Bar & View, a tri-level complex featuring a revolving restaurant and lounge. This is by far the best place to go in Atlanta for an incredible 360-degree view of the city. We enjoyed champagne, watching the buildings pass by, and a delicious meal together (I got the lobster, my fiancé!! got the filet mignon).
I will remember this night forever... it was perfect, and everything a girl could dream of!
