Our planned "EPICnic" at the Hollywood Bowl turned out to be truly epic!
The bf prepared a yummy lunch filled with our favorites... Lou Malnati's salad from Chicago, grilled chicken sandwich we always used to make in NY, and Banberry pie from Polly's Pies. Little did I know that the ring box was sitting next to me the entire time! I found it when he asked me to grab something from our picnic basket and completely lost my ability to breathe. Inside was a letter written 2.5 years ago when he was flying back to Cali for the holidays. It was the first time being together in person since we started long distance as friends! Can't believe all the things we've been through, but it's been worth the wait. Thanks so much to my family and long-distance besties waiting to celebrate when we got home! I even got ambushed by my hilariously excited classmates with bridal magazines and champagne on my first day back to class. Don't know when the reality of the situation will finally kick in, but I am overwhelmed by all the blessings! Thanks so much everyone. <3 <3 <3
