A life of new horizons ahead
I proposed to my girlfriend Lisa a few weeks ago. I knew Lisa wanted something private—away from people and surprises—so I proposed in the living room of our home on a quiet Saturday afternoon, with Lisa’s dog Emma by our side (I also proposed to Emma with beef-flavored cookies). I’m an emotional person, and I knew that I wouldn’t be able to keep it together and would likely forget everything I wanted to say, so I wrote a long letter that slowly built to the proposal. True to form, I was a sniffly mess as I struggled through the letter, but Lisa said yes, and we are engaged :) We’ve celebrated with our families over the last few weeks, and we’re excited for a life of new horizons ahead.
