    I have been taking cooking classes and decided to throw my first 5-course dinner party. I was SO bummed when everyone started canceling at the last minute on me! Ryan said, "Well, since everyone canceled, why don't we get that photo of the two of us in front of the Golden Gate bridge for Adam and Laura's wedding slide show?" (his brother was getting married later that month and requested this particular photo).

    When we got there, we wandered around looking for his brother who was supposedly already there waiting for us with the camera. Suddenly, he got down on one knee and said, "I have a confession to make. Adam never asked for this photo. I love you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you." He held out the most gorgeous ring and I got down on the sand with him and we hugged, kissed and laughed.

    He then ran back to the car and brought out a basket of champagne, cheese and crackers. We had some random folks on the beach take photos. Then we rushed back to our place to change for dinner reservations at Fleur de Lis!

    He apparently had these reservations for months, so when I scheduled a dinner party, it was one more obstacle in his way! I love that it was a random Wednesday night, and the location was perfect for us! He said he chose it so we can go back each year on our anniversary and it will never change and always be available.
