I guess we kind of knew this day was coming. We've just been together for so long that sometimes you just know when things need to change.
This is why Handsome Helpful Boyfriend will no longer be known as Handsome Helpful Boyfriend.
He is now Handsome Helpful Fiancé.
Oh come on, you knew that was coming!
So I'm currently on vacation and Handsome Helpful Boyfriend and I go for a walk at Muir Woods National Monument. We're nearing the end of the trail where we see a bench where we perch ourselves and enjoy the scenery. He tells me to close my eyes. I do. When I open them, he's on one knee in front of me with a little wooden box with an engagement ring inside and he asks me to marry him.
After I finished crying, I said yes.
That's where he proposed.
He did good ;)
