It was December 12, 2012… remember it like it was yesterday. I was supposed to meet Hector for dinner at the L’Auberge Del Mar hotel where we would have dinner with his partners and their wives. I remember that I was a little upset because he was making me drive all the way over there alone but I reasoned with myself and decided not to make a fuss because he was already at the hotel in a “meeting”.
I drive up to the valet, walk into the hotel, ask the concierge to direct me in the direction of the conference room. They ask me if I am looking for Hector Sosa. I nod and they give me a key with a room number. A bit confused, I take the elevator, walk out and start looking for the room.
I insert the key and open the door. To my surprise, there is a path of candles leading to the balcony but no one is in the room or the BALCONY! At that point, I have to admit I freaked out! So many things went through my mind! Is this the right room? Did I ruin a surprise, why is he not here? Shit, I got here before him! Wait, is this it? Is he going to propose? All of that happened in the highlight of 5 seconds as I stood in the balcony by myself with two glasses and a bottle of wine. I turn around quickly in a desperate attempt to flee the scene, thinking I had ruined the surprise and there he is, standing in front of me, having appeared out of nowhere. He says, “hola amore, ve la botella de vino” translating into, “hey love, look at the bottle of wine I made for you”.
So I turn around, at that point SO SO NERVOUS, pick up the bottle of wine and to my surprise it opens in two, (no wine inside of course) and there it is. The most beautiful ring ever! As I turn around again to look at him, he was already on one knee and it was then when my heart dropped and he popped the question!
Quickly after, he told me that all my family and friends were already waiting for us at a restaurant close by. I know. He is such a keeper! Any married woman will tell you that the day you get engaged is a day you will never forget.
