The Proposal!

So for those of you wondering, here's a little rundown of how it all happened...

It was my last day in the office before Thanksgiving, and Alex surprised me with a date after work. Just after sunset, we headed over to City Hall Park in Manhattan to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, stopping to admire the view periodically along the way. It was chilly out on the water, so we were all cuddled up together. Very romantic.

About half way over, he stopped, took me by the hands, said the most romantic, loving things... and then proposed!

I've pretty much been giddy ever since!

This is us below, right after. Alex is so cute in my hat.

Afterward, we walked hand in hand across the bridge to Brooklyn and then on to Grimaldi's (known for having the best Pizza in nyc).

I've never been able to get in to Grimaldi's before as they always have a line around the block, but we got a table up front by the window, had wine and pizza and traditional Italian desserts. It really is all that.

This is me as we toasted our engagement! It was a perfect night!
