April 10, 2003 – It was a gray, cloudy day in Paris. We were staying with a BFA family in the suburbs & taking the train into the center to sightsee during the day. We had already spent one day sightseeing & now were on day two. One of the things on the agenda for the day was the Rodin museum. For those non-art people (like me), he is a sculptor, who created “The Thinker”:

The museum is housed in Rodin’s home, which is incredibly beautiful!
We walked around the grounds and then went through the museum. This is us by another sculpture by Rodin called “The Kiss”.
After we finished walking through the museum we wandered back out into the garden & sat down on one of the benches:
It was there that Micah asked, “Heather, will you marry me?” and I responded with “Yes! Definitely!”
After reveling in our newly engaged status for a time, we wandered over to the most famous of all sights:
We enjoyed the view of the Eiffel Tower from the ground & then took the elevator to the top & enjoyed looking out over the city!
The newly engaged couple enjoying the sights of Paris!!!
A day or two after we returned from Paris, Micah came by the dorm where I was working & brought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
And attached to the bouquet was a gorgeous ring! Exactly what I would have picked out had I picked it out myself! (Micah had tried to purchase this ring before our trip to Paris, but due to lots of extenuating circumstances he had to wait until we returned to pick it up)
After choosing salvation, saying “yes” to Micah was the best decision I ever made!!! So thankful for the past 10 years of life together!
