This story is about a restaurant that you won’t be able to patronize, because it was created solely for me.  I was in Mississippi on business. My fiancée had also taken a plane to the same city, just to surprise me.  I routinely stayed at this charming Bed & Breakfast every week.  All of the staff knew me, and they were most helpful in helping Josh set up this surprise.

It was on our 7 month anniversary of dating.  When I finished my days work, I arrived at the B&B, chatted with the staff for a few minutes, and then headed to my room.  When I got to the door, there was a sign
hanging there and it said “Josh’s place”.  I had to knock on the door because it was locked.  He opened the door in a waiter’s uniform and greeted
me with open arms.

He had set up a table and chairs, with a lovely white
tablecloth, candles, champagne cooling in an ice bucket, and a wonderful dinner that he and the staff had all prepared.  We had fresh rock lobster with all of the trimmings.  During dinner he handed me a small wrapped gift box which contained a heart necklace.  At just the right moment, there was a
knock on the door, and our dessert was delivered to the room.  He had made heart shaped cookies and placed them in crystal bowls with ice cream.  The night was unforgettable.
