He proposed over Fourth of July weekend (july 3rd to be exact). We decided to drive from Arizona to San Diego for the long weekend to get out of the heat and spend some time at the beach (which be both miss being from the east coast). We woke up at 3am on Saturday July 3rd and made the 5.5 hour drive to La Jolla. We checked into our hotel and then went to the beach. In the afternoon, we decided to walk on a path looking out over the beach and once we were alone he said "I have a question for you, will you marry me?" I was shocked and said in response "Are you serious right now?" Then I said yes and promptly called my family to let them know the good news. When we got back to the hotel there were chocolate covered strawberries and champagne in he waiting for us in the room (the hotel did this on their own). It was a perfect weekend!
My name is Catherine and I have been engaged to Sam for about 2 months now. We met freshman year of college and have been together ever since. We are getting married on August 27, 2011, which is less than a year away! We currently live in Tempe, AZ, but I am from Boston and we will be getting married back east. We are planning to have the ceremony and reception outside at my dad's house. Planning from afar is going to be a huge challenge over the next year.
