5 Years Ago...

Five years ago Ryan asked me to marry him :) Of course I blogged about it back them (I even had a separate 'wedding blog'). Below is the post about the engagement story and some of the pictures from that day:

Me and my new ring

He did good! (Even though I sort of designed it :) )

The Story


So Ryan and I do this activity called Geo Caching. It is like a high-tech version of treasure hunting. On the website you can go on and put in a zip code and it will give you all of the hidden 'caches' around that area. Ryan told me Friday night that he wanted to go to the 'oldest cache in San Diego (and one of the first 1000 in the world)' on Saturday morning. I thought this was a little fishy because normally when we go out geo caching I get all the info, and also he likes to sleep in but he wanted to go out to this one at 7am Saturday morning. He was trying to play it off like we had to meet up with his sister and her husband for breakfast, which is why we needed to go so early. We ended up at this park (Kate Sessions Park in La Jolla) that overlooked downtown San Diego and is just a cool park. We were looking around for the cache and once we found it Ryan called me over (because normally we look in different areas to give us more of a chance to find it) and he was down on both knees (he gives the excuse that it hurts his knee to be on one so he was on 2, hehe) and asked me to marry him. I remember saying 'Shut up' a couple times but then a resounding YES was said! I have uploaded the pictures from this weekend on my google account, so check them out. The first 20 or so our the shots from the engagement and the following 300+ are from the sight seeing we did with his sister and her husband throughout the weekend, since they hadn't been out to San Diego (so we were quite the tour guides on our engagement weekend).

As you can see in the pics, we are both SUPER excited!! :) And hopefully when we start making decisions about when, where, etc. I will be able to post them (so that everyone feels included in the planning process. :)

Thanks in advance for your warm wishes; the support of our friends and families mean the world to us and we are so excited to know that everyone is so happy for us!!
