Love rides the Holiday Train

Shoal-Lake.jpg​I have been going to the Christmas train for years! I love the beautiful lights, the entertainment, the good cause and the atmosphere there.   But this year was one I will never EVER forget. The Christmas train will have a special place in my heart for the rest of my life.   

It was a beautiful night. The air was crisp, a small dusting of snow on the ground. I remember the stars looked particularly beautiful that night. My family was all there from around the area and all the children were having a great time.   My boyfriend told me that we won a contest and won a trip on the train and we had to go up and claim it at the end of the show! I was so excited but super nervous. We spent the show singing along and dancing, soaking in every minute as I usually do. The entertainment was amazing as per usual...And then it was time to go up on the train. 

We got called up and they quickly gave Ian the microphone which came as a surprise. Instead of winning a trip Ian asked me the most important question of our lives. He asked me to be his wife!! I was so excited but completely shocked! I of course said yes!!   Ian is the best thing that has ever happened to me!  He makes me happier than I ever thought possible, he makes me laugh a little harder, he makes me smile a whole lot more and every single day he reminds me what butterflies feel like. 

Thank you for making me believe that love does exist.  this is our fairytale.   HUGE thank you to the holiday train and all the staff and performers of making this a most amazing night to remember!! We will never miss a Holiday Train​​.
