The Story

Saturday at lunch, I asked Gen if we had any plans for dinner. Our schedules where clear, so I asked her if I could set up some surprise dinner plans. And she did get a bit of a surprise.

I took her across the Golden Gate Bridge and into the Marin Headlands. There's a series of mostly untouched hills just across the bridge, and that was where our second date took place. I took her to an outcropping in the hills above an ocean side cliff, and set up a picnic. I got out some of her favorite snacky-bits and we ate dinner with the Golden Gate to our left and the sun setting to our right.

After we had finished dinner, with the sun just above the horizon I got the ring out of my jacked pocket, got down on one knee and asked her to marry me. I had barely spoken the words, when she answered "yes".
