we're getting married!
here's how the boy described how it all went down in an email to a friend:
"I picked her up by surprise and took her to a plane, then we flew to Seattle, and drove and backpacked out to the furthest west spot in the contiguous US. Then as the sun was setting I told her that no matter what happens, no matter how dark it gets I will never leave her and put a ring on her finger and asked her to marry me. She said yes and we stayed up on the beach next to a fire watching the stars come out next to luminescent tide pools and the moon set.
I'm not kidding. That's all true. It was more magical than I ever could have expected."
more details to come.
i am freaking out excited.
"So am I."
