A year ago he put a ring on it

One year ago today….
I was visiting my boyfriend in D.C. and he took me to the Jefferson Memorial at midnight.

We were in love 🙂
We looked out over the Potomac river. 
 SURPRISE! He kneeled down and asked me to marry him (plus some other very sweet, mushy words)
I said YES! 
We were SUPER happy! 
He picked out the ring all by himself! Of course I was in love with it!
 And we called our families to share the joy.
(he’s laughing because my Dad just said “you don’t know what you’re in for”- very funny dad)
Now we’re an old married couple. Who are more in love than ever!!
Thanks for asking me to marry you hun! xoxo

    I'd never think of the Jefferson Memorial as a romantic place for a proposal, but your photos make it looks so magical! And of course, the look on both of your faces make it even more magical!
