The Proposal: Jesse had planned a surprise date..I had been moving that day and was completely distracted, so I wasn't expecting anything. He drove me to one of our favorite spots in San Diego...Sunset Cliffs...right at sunset. We walked up to the edge of the cliff (not too close to the edge..I'm way too afraid of heights for that shinannigans). He told me he had written me a poem, which again was nothing out of the ordinary...I'm one of those incredibly lucky girls who gets spoiled with flowers and poetry regularly from my boy. After he read it, I was so moved and caught up that I didn't even see him pull the ring out of his pocket!!
Next thing I knew, he was down on one knee with that little black box open in front of him asking me to spend the rest of our lives together. It was extremely emotional and wonderful. We immediately called all of our family and friends who were thrilled for us, and then headed to one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego, The 3rd Corner in OB (excellent wine and eats) where Jesse had called ahead to tell them what he was planning. We were welcomed with champagne on ice, delicious food and wonderful company. It was a perfect night, simple and sweet.
Lots of love,
Mello soon-to-be Lovejoy (yup! that will be my new last name!!)
