I must have known something - I was the luckiest guy in the world.
What I didn't know what that, behind me, Vicky's dad was taking pictures, capturing the moment on his cell phone's camera! And only recently has he forwarded those pictures to us.
Now, there are a few pictures but I'm only posting one for now. It's this one. This was the moment...
You'll notice that Vicky's looking down (she calls herself "Cousin It" in this shot) but that's because she's blown away by the enormous rock! (... kinda) You may also notice the bottle of champagne that her father so kindly put out for us. (Okay, he had an employee do it. Still...) And, yep, that's her mom's restaurant.
It's one of those moments you wish you could live over again. Thanks to Vic's dad, we can a little.
