How he proposed…
Lindsay and Justin decided to go up north to Quebec CIty for The Winter Carnival – an amazing chilly weekend in the historic city. With strategic planning, they decided to drive half way up on a Thursday night, so they could drive through Canada in the daylight.
They booked a room at the Moose River Lodge & Motel, and tiny B&B in the middle of no-where. With frozen pipes and a snowstorm pounding down, they enjoyed their “rustic” stay. Early Friday morning after an amazing breakfast of french toast, sausages and strawberries, they finished up the trip and found their adorably tiny dwelling, Hôtel le Cavalier du Moulin, right in the center of the old city.
Lindsay and Justin quickly unpacked, and loaded on the layers. It was known that the city was cold and windy that weekend, but that wasn’t even close to a proper description. They layered on around multiple shirts, jackets, snow pants, full head masks and ski goggles so not an inch of skin was showing. Mittens, boots, 13 layers of socks and a hot beverage in hand, and they were off for a day of exploring. They found ice luges to sled down, skating rinks, a tiny corner bar to sip a beer and play Yahtzee! and hot tubs to relax in – outside hot tubs!! Everything was coated in icicles!
That night for dinner, they found a delicious restaurant, and immediately made friends with the people sitting next to them – he was from Cali too – their high schools had played water polo against each other, and they discussed all the interstates and exits that North Cali had to offer. After an amazing dinner, Lindsay and Justin made their way winding through the old streets – deserted of all cars and people, surprising on such a HUGE weekend! Walking down one particular European street, they passed a large window front, elaborately adorned with every kitchen gadget one could ask for. Reverting back to a childhood game, they faced the window and Lindsay asked “if you could pick anything in this window, what would you pick?” And Justin confidently mentioned that he could see her in the reflection, and claimed “So I would choose you!” and got down on one knee to propose.
After a happy break dance in the middle of the street, Lindsay and Justin both promised to make each other happy for the rest of their lives, and got themselves together for a celebratory cocktail at the amazing Chateau Frontenac.
