My loves, if you follow me on social media, you may already know that Alex and I are engaged! Over the years, Alex and I have been through what most couples would encounter in a decade. From traveling the world, overcoming hardships, losing our family members together, and surviving a pandemic—through it all, we never gave up. And now we’re engaged! We’re thankful for our family and friends’ overwhelming love and support after sharing our engagement news. Here is our proposal story.
Since the pandemic started last year, we’ve always been incredibly cautious by spending limited time in public places and avoiding large crowds. Alex had to get creative. He knows that I love picnics, so he took me on a private picnic at the beach located in the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay Resort. The location is special to us because we spent so much time here in the past few years. The ocean views are unbelievably gorgeous, and it’s romantic no matter what time of the year you visit.
The timing was perfect when we arrived. Most people were leaving, and we had the entire beach area to ourselves the whole time. Alex packed a picnic basket full of delicious charcuterie, our favorite cheeses, pâté, and wine for us to enjoy while enjoying the beautiful ocean views.
After some time, Alex found the right time to propose. He reached into our picnic basket to pull out a keto crackers box and reached inside to get the engagement ring he hid in that box. He immediately got down on one knee and proposed. Of course, I’m saving a few details just for us to remember! He was tearing up, and I was on the verge of tears. It was such a special and happy moment which we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
Our proposal story is only the beginning. I’m excited to share our wedding journey with you in the upcoming year.
