BC: The Beginning
FC: Beaufort, NC March 4-6, 2011 | Our Coastal Getaway!
1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. CathyAllen | This love story was created by: Andrea Finley and Michael Burns
2: For my 29th Birthday, Mike surprised me by taking me to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for the weekend! Mike is so romantic he had a fake work schedule made to trick me into thinking I worked, when really he had packed my suitcase for me...right down to the matching headbands to go with different outfits!
4: All things grow better with love. | Dinner at Aqua Restaurant
5: A Birthday Gift From Aqua!
6: The Inlet Inn
7: WELCOME TO PARADISE!
8: Continental Breakfast in Bed with a Beautiful view of the Inlet
9: The view from our room overlooking Carrot Island where you can see wild horses.
10: Fort Macon
11: So we spent some time at Fort Macon instead; a civil war fort at the entrance to the inlet. | Make Love Not War | We tried to take the ferry to Cape Lookout, but the winter hours were restricting...
12: After the fort we took a stroll on the Beach. The Atlantic Ocean was beautiful, but we thought we'd get a better view!
13: We spotted the tallest sand dune and hiked to the top. This was the view from our own private dune!
14: We set up our camping chairs on top of the dunes and soaked in the brisk ocean breeze. The scenery was wonderful, but the company was even better!
15: Mike seemed as if he had something to say...
16: And it was then that he poured his heart out and asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him!
17: Of course I said YES! Mike is the love of my life and I am the luckiest woman alive to be sharing my days with him! | My $10 Butterfly Ring!! It's perfect Mike!
18: We have never cried so many happy tears. We have found what some people search their whole lives for- True Love.
