the next day at my place

just after he proposed

the picnic spread, notice the heart shaped rice krispy treats . . . he's a hopeless romantic and I love it!

the view from our picnic blanket, not bad for Southern CA (not quite Alaska but pretty for a desert land)

the picnic spread he planned

a little sparkling lemonade with a sparkling diamond ring!

a ring shot

the post proposal tail-gate target practice

Jonathan and Stephanie the couple I am living with temporarily (they are incredibly hospitable)

Our first engagement present from Jonathan and Stephanie

This past Saturday Ben and I spent the day together in the mountains and he proposed!! The story is great and I want to do it justice but life has been crazy so I will post pictures now and fill in the details later for those who have been asking to see the RING. It is AMAZING!!! I am SO happy! I am getting MARRIED! The wedding will be in Alaska on June 27th for those who want to mark their calendars. :)

Yay! I'm so excited for you both. I put the date on the calendar, so you better not go and turn it into some sort of "exclusive" thing like your brother's event ;)

Rachel said...

Woohoo! What a happy happy day for both of you (and all of us, who have been praying!) Congratulations. We can't wait for the wedding- I'm sure there will be tears involved!!! Enjoy all the wedding plans- they are so fun!
