engaged! the story.

This is a blog post about my surprise trip to NYC. Here's the story! Kevin told me we were flying to San Francisco for a vacation. Little did I know, Kevin had been planning to take me to New York all along so that he could propose! His intentions were to rent bikes in the park but I ruined all of his engagement plans because all I wanted to do was shop all day. If I had known that he was going to propose, I may not have been as anxious to go to H&M and Madwell. But eventually we made it to the park. I had no idea what was about to happen, or why he was so anxious to get there. We found a secluded spot on the water that we both loved. Kevin knelt down and asked: "will you marry me?"
Simple, to the point. I said "yes!"

Happy tears.

My entire life I have been obsessed with the film West Side Story. He surprised me and took me to the play on Broadway! It was wonderful.



Kevin gave me a little photography lesson in Bryant Park. We listened to a string quartet practice for a performance they had that evening.

This is a photo Kevin took of a building, I really liked it.

One of our favorite rooms in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

My first subway ride as an engaged woman. Ps, I am really really scared of rats.

a picture Kevin took on a bridge in Central Park right before he proposed.

Kevin looking all handsome again.

Kevin snapped this picture of a random man blowing bubbles in Central Park, that's why we love New York City. Always something to see.

the Upper East Side!
Radio City Music Hall!


Side Notes: we ate cheesecake in bed. We had hot chocolate in the freezing cold. We met up with wonderful friends. We had hot dogs all day every day. We both probably gained 10 pounds on this trip! So worth it. We saw a movie at 2am, this city NEVER sleeps! Everyone in NYC is fashionable. EVERYONE. I love it there, I want to move there as soon as possible. We might get married in January. No official date.

Kevin is someone I have kept pretty hidden from the blog world. He is so special to me. I have never felt so loved, so special to anyone. He always takes care of me. He's over a foot taller than me. We share the same passions for food, and music, and now New York! He has a wonderful testimony of the Gospel. He served in Spokane Washington. He is obsessed with everything Apple. He wants to go to NYU for Law. He is good at everything he does! He makes me a chocolate shake every night. He is adorable. I can't wait to marry him! And I am excited to start blogging about my OWN wedding for once!
