Where They Got Engaged

It was just another typical day, except that Chris and Francine had come to the decision they wanted to get married.  So they planned a Valentine’s Date that started with going ring shopping and they finished the date at a romantic Valeintine’s dinner finishing the evening going to sleep as an engaged couple!
