Oh the love story of those lovely two:

Our Engagement as told by Ashley: I had just gotten back from Canada and Nick told me he would have to go out of town on Sunday.  I was not thrilled and had been gone for two weeks and would only have a day with him, but I knew I was going to make the best of it.  So Sunday came and Nick kissed me goodbye, although I thought it was weird that Nick had on a collared shirt and my favorite cologne to go to the airport.  We said our goodbyes.   Nick told me that maintenance was coming to check an outlet. Nick’s parents were coming up and asked me to go to lunch, but not to leave before maintenance got there.  About an hour later I got a text from Nick saying he was at the airport about to go through security (this is the norm for us).  Then I got a knock on the door, which was maintenance, after playing with Wasabi (my dog) he got a call asking if he was in my apartment. He then told me that I had a package downstairs. I thought it was odd but I followed him.  Once downstairs Diane (our concierge) told me they were treating part of the grass area outside and didn’t want her love “Wasabi” to get in it.  She then asked me to follow her outside to show me the area. To my surprise there was no treated area just a horse and carriage. It was strange that the driver started talking to me and then told me she had something for me.  It was a scroll tied with a gold ribbon.  I opened the scroll to find a caricature of Nick on one knee asking me to marry him.  I then asked the driver where he was.  As I turned around Nick was behind me on one knee.  I wish I could tell you what he said but I don’t remember because I was in shock.  He can’t tell you either but I am sure if we ask the crowd of people that had gathered around us one of them would know.  We then took a carriage ride through the city to have a picnic at Millennium Park.
