As we walked the aisles of art from ancient times and contemporary alike, we happened upon a room of Picasso’s art (Marybeth’s favorite), My brother and sister in law were able to then hang the painting I had made of myself proposing to Marybeth wearing the red polka dot dress next to a Picasso. After I was given the signal I brought my girlfriend to the painting where she began immediately crying when she realized that the painting was of what was about to take place.

She nodded yes as tears travelled down her rosy cheeks. Her cousin, who had been undercover waiting for them to arrive at the museum, beautifully documented the moment through her photography.
