"Nick was home on his summer leave and we were just hanging out at my apartment. I had fallen asleep and Nick woke me up telling me that we had somewhere to go, so we got into the car and he started driving. He wouldnt tell me where we were going, even though I asked a ton of times. Finally we arrived at Harriet Lake. We parked, and Nick told me we were just there to walk around for something to do. We were walking around the lake when we came to the map and I saw that there was a rose garden and we decided to go there. We walked around the rose garden and some of the other gardens/landscaping around the rose garden. After about an hour of walking around we ended up back at the rose garden. We walked up and down the aisles, smelling all of the different kinds of roses. Nick said he wanted to pick one of them to take but there were too many people around, so we went to sit on one of the benches in front of the fountain to wait. We sat and talked until most of the people had left the garden. Then, Nick got off of the bench, took my hand, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! "
