Our Engagement photo 1

Greg popped the big question on Sept 5th, 2008 in San Francisco, overlooking the Golden Gate bridge and the city.  He was there for work and we decided to make a weekend trip out of it.  His company offered to pay for my flight and an extra night hotel room for us, since I was supposed to get to go with him to Hawaii for a project, but never did get to go (Hawaii would have been amazing, but San Fran was really fun, too)! We were doing really touristy stuff that day - rented bikes and rode across the bridge, which was awesome.  We then went up a BIG hill to this outlook where Greg got on his knee.  He started saying all this sweet stuff and I actually interrupted him and said "whoa, what are you doing!"  He just said "shut up and let me finish!"  haha.  I said yes, we cried and hugged. It was really special and thankfully there weren't a lot of people around, so it was nice and private. I was really nervous riding the bike back with my ring on cause I couldn't stop looking at it!! So distracting, even on the bridge!!
