One evening during our trip to Chiang Mai, My husband told me to put on my best dress and be ready at 7pm... We were dining somewhere special!
We strolled through the rice fields at dusk until we arrived at a candle lit walk way to the private reserve rice barn
Lanterns and rose petals guided the way...
I cant tell you how overwhelmed I was by such a lovely surprise... and how utterly beautiful it all was!
He had worked with the chef to plan the perfect dinner in the middle of the rice fields, selecting my favorite Thai foods with wine paring
And he had arranged for a bouquet of my favorite flowers...the most romantic thing ever!
We sat with a glass of champagne, looking out over the rice fields as the night drew and the view became a sea of flickering candlelight. I could have died it was so beautiful.
Our private waiter sonny, was the loveliest. We listened to a private mandolin player, which was truly magical
Every course was served so creatively...almost to pretty to eat
And you know I'm all about that mango sticky rice
Sonny blessed us with a tradition Thai floating candle ceremony to bless our Marriage. We lit the candle and let it float away on the lake. Such a beautiful moment
When we were ready to leave , they had a buggy come to take us back... probably the best idea of all the wine paring
And when I saw they had decorated the whole cart with fresh orchids and balloons I was blown away... cutest thing ever. In fact, this experience was up there with our engagement, wedding and honeymoon
And this was before I saw what he had arranged for the room. OMG
There were flowers, rose petals and fresh orchids EVERYWHERE
A bottle of their finest Champagne
And to my utter amazement they had manage to print and frame a copy of a photo they had taken of us... again with the details!
Totally up there in the amazing moments of life
What have been your amazing moments of life? I’d love to know!
