Over the past month, I’ve been hard at work painting boards and gearing up for my proposal. On Thursday night, it finally happened.

Here are a few pictures, along with one still I took from the video camera that was set up in the corner. Couldn’t have asked for a better day – the sun was setting and the weather cooperated just fine.

I wasn’t really nervous until right before I carried her out. I made up a story about wanting to skateboard down a few levels, so I was carrying her out, eyes closed, to set her up on the board so she wouldn’t be scared. While trying to convince her, heart pounding, she looked at me and said, “Honey…you look high”. Apparently my eyes were bloodshot and I looked a little sick. Regardless, it all went down just fine, and I now have a fiance.
