Most of all, I remember... Being born on July 5th, my early birthday celebrations made me think that all of the fireworks were just for me. Even though I eventually learned they were actually celebrating America (in addition to my birthday), I still loved them, like a lot. Seriously. From our old apartment, Zach and I were be able to see the summer fireworks at Navy Pier. Every Wednesday and Saturday night, I'd run to the balcony to watch as soon as they started.
One Monday night last April, Zach told me that we were going to Navy Pier for a celebration for the Museum of Science and Industry's new exhibit. Since they weren't serving dinner, Zach said we'd turn it into a "date night" and made reservations at a restaurant on Navy Pier. After dinner, we walked along the pier towards the party and suddenly fireworks starting going off over the water. HUH? Summer fireworks were still months away…Zach said "Want to stop and watch?" and the next thing I remember Zach was down on one knee and holding a ring. People ask if I was surprised. Surprised? I'd say shocked! So shocked, that apparently forgot to say yes and instead kept asking "is this real?" over and over gain. I hear I even pinched myself before I said yes. But I did, I said YES.
Only later did I find out that my excitement over the summer fireworks had given Zach an idea, and he spent the next 6 months planning a night where the fireworks really were just for me. I'm so excited for a future full of love, big surprises, and many more fireworks.
