Incredibly Romantic

"We enjoyed every moment of our stay in this truly special place . . . after getting unpacked, we took a walk into the historic part of [Cottonwood Falls] to catch the most beautiful pink light reflected off of the courthouse . . . There must be something very special about this place, because moments later, my special man asked me to marry him! It was easy to say yes!"
