"Between Christmas and New Year's, we took a road trip to St. Louis," Angela says. "On the way back, we stayed House Mountain Inn, Lexington, Virginia. It's a big lodge-type bed and breakfast up in the mountains. He was very excited staying there. But, we like bed and breakfasts, so I thought he was excited about the place. When we got there, they had a wine and cheese hour. Then we spent about an hour reading in front of the fireplace. He didn't read. He was reading the same page again and again. But, I was totally oblivious. They had a little balcony off the second story. About 10 minutes before dinner, he said, 'Let's go take a peek at the balcony.' We went out there to look at the stars. It's out in the mountains and there are stars everywhere. He asked how I was, and I said, 'Very happy.' Then he started shaking. He was trembling like a leaf. At that point, I thought something was going on. And then he got down on one knee and said 'Angela, will you marry me?' It was so dark out there, I couldn't actually see the ring. I forgot to say anything for what seemed like a really long time. Then, I realized I hadn't and said, 'Yes, of course' and burst into tears. We went back inside so I could look at the ring. He did an absolutely perfect job [with what he picked]. It's really pretty. We have similar taste in jewelry. He knew what I didn't like. So he spent a long time looking for it."
