The third week has come to an end and another chapter in my life with Rosa has finished, but definitely has not ended. While she and I will once again be apart from each other di persona, we are definitely together and our love for each other has become even stronger. These three weeks traveling together has proven to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that I want to be with her and an open proposal is there.
Our week in the bay area has been amazing exploring San Francisco, Santa Rosa, Napa and Sonoma Valleys. We crossed the Golden Gate Bridge many times and experienced Ghirardelli, Fisherman’s Wharf, ate Dim Sum outside of Chinatown and went to the Walt Disney Museum. We spent time with Kenn and Nora, mostly Kenn, doing oysters, menudo and an In and Out Burger. We enjoyed time at the Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa. Yes, we are both Peanuts fans and even had a Rocky & Adrian moment on the ice rink there. Charles M Schulz was from Minnesota, but I am sure you knew that. We also enjoyed pie at the Pie Shop in Petaluma and many other experiences.
In the end, we had an amazing week where we cooked together, enjoyed being with each other and on the 19th, we went to the Top of the Mark at the Intercontinental with an amazing view of the city and a beautiful sunset. And, I read a love note to her in Italian which I had written some 16 months before and the only piece I had written to her which I had never shared, because, it was not just a love note, but a proposal. And while she, at first, was not sure and as she is Italian and her different ways, she said being married was not something she was sure about and why it has to be that way. I said, it was a commitment to each other. The next morning, she asked if it could be an open proposal and I said, it was.
Am a little disappointed that she did not say yes, of course, and in a way, I knew, but the courtship continues. I asked her many times her ring size. Of course, I tried to find out without success and then yesterday, she stepped into a Macy’s on her own, for a while, and came out a while later and said her finger was a size 7 or 8, so now I know and when we are together again, and I plan to be in Europe this summer to be her, I will ask her again, because I want to do it in person.
We parted here at the airport and I stayed with her at the international terminal as long as I could and then had to get to my flight. I know we will be together in person again and day when I no longer have to pack my bags to be with her will come about. Io volio essere con te di persona sempre!!!
