....and I just happened to be there.
It all started last Thursday night when I helped a friend celebrate her birthday on the dinner cruise Nina's Dandy.
(Nina's Dandy on Potomac River in front of Jefferson Memorial and Washington Monument)
While said friend and I were chatting, I noticed a lone couple on the dance floor, totally oblivious to the rest of the diners.
Lord forgive me, but when I saw him drop to his knee I could not contain myself. I did what any
writer wanna-be reporter worth their weight in gold would have done - grabbed my phone and started snapping pictures.
He looked at me like I was some kind of nut, and I, in my best tabloid-reporter voice said,
"Don't mind me - you're going to want pictures of this, trust me!"
So, ignore me he did....
He proceeded to pull out a little box with something shiny,
and then popped the question...
She said 'yes',
and then obliged as I took a picture of her beautiful ring!
I love my job!
And congratulations to the happy couple.
