The holidays mark the beginning of engagement season. To celebrate all of the proposals going on, I thought I would share the story of how Dan proposed to his girlfriend Jessie during their trip to Australia this past September.
"We were on vacation in Australia and had taken a ferry over to Manly Beach to explore. We spent the morning riding bikes up to the National Park and stopped off at a small beach. I was happily beach combing for shells and taking pictures when Dan asked me to go stand closer to the water for a photo op. Instead, he handed me his camera and said that Kona (our dog) had sent him some special pictures for me. Totally confused, I grabbed his camera and there was a picture of Kona with a sign that read "Dad has a question for you." That's when Dan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Still in shock, I gave him my right hand but quickly switched to my left as he put the ring on my finger. After a quick phone call to my mom, we hopped back on our bikes and back to Manly for celebratory drinks and lunch. My new ring made for a pretty good souvenir of our trip!" ~ Jessie
Congratulations Jessie and Dan!
