THE greatest NYE ever

#107281 2 years, 6 months ago
Here's my adventures from the weekend,

So, to start we're from NJ and it was mine and my girl's FIRST west coast show in 25 years of going to shows and to be in SF, home base of it all, was truly magical and a total "bucket list" trip for both of us. The energy was amazing and the shows were awesome.

Then when it came to about 2 minutes to midnight, just as the dragon was emerging, I had asked a kindly older head to snap a picture of us, but I had set the camera to video(I let my cameraman know)........and then I dropped to one knee and pulled out a diamond ring and said to my lovely girlfriend.,.."I've never been happier in my life Dawn...would you do me the honor of becoming my wife?" She was completely BLOWN away....she cried and said YES!...the balloons fell and cheers were heard all around from the Furthur family near me. It was a really special moment that neither of us will EVER forget. More tears ensued...lol and we kissed and danced all through Sugar Mag, which is a pet name I call Dawn sometimes. Furthur provided the perfect background to our moment in time. I am still riding high off it days later. I'll try and post some pics of the moment but here's a pic of us yesterday enjoying the glory of SF.......

I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Thanks for sharing such a heart warming story. Super cool they went into Sugar Mag for you and your bride to be. You both must have been in heaven with the immediate yes for you, the surprise for her and all those balloons and the good vibes in the arena.

I suspect NYE will never be the same for both of you.
