Christmas Memories & New Beginnings

29 Dec

So I knew this Christmas was going to be a fun one, but boy was I in for a surprise! I know there are a few of you hanging in suspense, so I’ll just cut to the chase :) Graham proposed on December 23 while we were enjoying a night of ice skating & Christmas cheer in Union Square, San Francisco. My family used to drive up to San Francisco every year around Christmas to walk around Union Square and enjoy the festive decorations – so it already has a special place in my heart. Graham knew of this tradition and saw it as a place to bring together old family memories and new beginnings. I was completely surprised, in the absolute best way! We are excited and thoroughly enjoying this new season of life together. And yes, we have already jumped right into wedding planning :) I’ll be sure to post wedding updates now and again.

Fun Fact: back in October Graham flew to the Bay Area for the day to meet with my Dad and ask for his blessings. Yes, the moment I heard of this my heart melted. I am one lucky lady :)

Here are a few pictures of “the” night:
