As of Saturday night, Anna and I are engaged. We're aiming for October.

I decided sometime last year. I bought the ring in December, and it seemed like it was finally about time for us both, so I brought it with us to San Francisco last night, and asked her in the middle of the freezing cold dark windy rainstorm under the dome of the Palace of Fine Arts. Specifically, behind one of the columns, on account of the freezing cold wind.

It's an almond-wood ring because she doesn't really like metal rings, and it says "Say Yes" on the inside, which she did, and I hope she says yes every day, for a long time.


  1. Congratulations to you both! You should post a picture of the ring; it sounds uniquely beautiful. (Also, Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies, so I loved the title of this post.)

  2. Katie, did you notice the tags for the post? I'll work on a ring pic; others have also asked.

  3. Aha! I love the tags now that I see them! :)
