This past sunday evening I decided to pop the question to Doug after months of planning! I tried to write out the story, but I just love how Doug was able to capture the story in his own words. So I will let him tell it:
Alex surprised me with a romantic dinner on the top of Grouse Mountain! I had no idea where we were going - I was still convinced it was Indian food until we finally started up towards the mountain. Once we got to the top I knew something was up because he was insistent that we head over to the light walk even though we were already cutting it close to our dinner reservation. As we entered the light walk Alex paused, kissed me and then went down on one knee! He later told me he had been practicing what to say for weeks, but in the moment he was so nervous all could say was "will you marry me?". (I thought it was so cute how nervous he was, but he's going hate that I tell you this!) Of course I said yes!
This wasn't the end of surprises though. He also planned a surprise trip to Arizona over my reading week to celebrate!
On my Instagram and facebook, I posted that he said “yes” but, he actually said “of course babe” and kissed me again. This photo is of that moment, and because of that it will forever be my favorite photo!
