Sometimes, dreams come true — Part 3

In case you missed the first posts…

(Part 1)

(Part 2)

The room was just as I had imagined it would be.

It wasn’t over-the-top-elaborate as the lobby had been.  But it was quaint, with an old-fashioned touch of elegance fitting for a hotel so rich in history.

Wall-paper.  Crown molding.  Deep colors.  Polished wood.  And beds so tall it took two hops and a jump to get onto them.

It all added up to one very excited girl…

But apparently Nate was going for more than excitement and was reaching for more along the lines of my being over-whelmed.  😉

Because we were soon walking through the Boston Gardens…

… which is one of my favorite places to visit in the city.

(We managed to take a couple of nice portraits before giving in to our silly side.  At which point, Nate started to grab bridges…

… and I became a monkey playing in the Weeping Willows).

We then ate dinner at my favorite Italian restaurant…

… went window-shopping along Newbury Street…

… and then had a moonlit stroll along the Charles’ River.

It was one of the most magical, romantic evenings of my life; and I will remember it forever.

But you know, as I waved goodbye to the Omni Parker House Hotel the next morning, I realized that I couldn’t have realized — as a little girl — what would really make the experience so special.  I had thought that it would be a night spent in a beautiful hotel full of history.  But really, it was spending that evening with Nate.

He really is my dream come true.

    This is really so wonderful and I love reading about this! I went to Boston with my hubby-to-be and it was a great experience, even though I had a lower back strain at the time.It really is so much more special when you have that special someone with you. And I love Boston, your posts made me want to go back to it even sooner!
