On Friday night I asked this girl
to marry me. Even though the whole process kind of freaked me out, and I got many good suggestions on how to do it (putting the ring in various forms of food, skydiving, etc). I opted for the old fashioned approach of taking her to a dive of a chinese restaurant in the international district (really good dumplings and homemade noodles). Following which, I took her on a tour of notable sites in our relationship, ending up in Matthews Park out towards the end of Sand Point. It was dark, rainy, and real cold. I tried to make it seem like I wasn't about to propose marriage, but there was no way around it, and thankfully, she said yes.
I consider myself pretty lucky. Wedding details will be forthcoming, but we are thinking the end of the summer -- as if you needed another reason to visit the great northwest.
