Towards the end of our flight from Boston to St Maarten via JFK on JetBlue, I glanced over at the couple sitting across the aisle from Julie and me and saw that they were studying my 9 pages of Helpful Hints. Many clients refer to the HH as their “bible” because I have so much information in there so as to help them get the most out of their St Barth Vacation.
I introduced myself to them and we chatted a bit. Brian and Sara are from New York and were going to be staying at Villa Enfin which is a fabulous villa boasting views in two directions. Believe it or not, they had only booked their vacation with Kathy Schlitzer, one of our St Barth Specialists the day before!
They were so in love and so happy. Upon their return Kathy sent them a note asking them how they enjoyed their time in St Barth. Brian replied, “Back in NYC. We got engaged there. We had a blast!! Enfin was a homerun! Thanks Kathy.”
I had goose bumps and Peg being Peg, I was so curious that I was dying to know how and where Brian popped the question. Here is the story from Sara:
”Brian proposed on Wed. Aug 4th, the second night after we arrived. I was so surprised! I honestly had no clue. I thought that the day he would propose to me, he would act different and totally give it away. Anyway, we hung out at our Villa all day, listening to music, tanning, and swimming. Around 5, we went into Gustavia to shop (he bought me a very cute outfit at Poupette St Barth), and have dinner at Le Bistro on the water. After dinner, we went back to the Villa for a glass of wine out on our back porch (which had a gorgeous view). We talked for a while, and then he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes. It was such a romantic, perfect moment. A moment that every person in love understands. We then switched from drinking wine to rum…ha ha. The whole rest of the week was wonderful…We were able to celebrate and enjoy our time alone before returning to the craziness in NYC with friends and family.”
Is that romantic or what? The wedding date is set for September 24, 2011.
Congratulations Brian and Sara!
(Speaking of rum, I will need to fill you in on that delicious tidbit but will save it for a future blog.)
