Our Proposal Story: Tuscan Proposal
We had just left Pisa on our way to San Gimignano, where we planned to spend one night. Taking back roads through Tuscany, we stopped frequently due to the abundance of stunning photo opportunities. Unbeknownst to me, my future, utterly perfect ring was tucked safely in Eric's pocket.

On our approach to the two thousand year old city of towers, we crested a hill and were greeted with a breathtaking view. Immediately we parked to take panoramic photographs of the medieval town and surrounding vineyards.

Due to a light rain, I found myself walking through a bit of mud to capture photos of the vineyard before Eric suggested I come up to where he was standing, so that I could scrape the mud off in the grass.

Eric and I have a friendly competition on who can "out surprise" the other, and before we departed he had assured me there were no surprises planned for this trip. So after a quick kiss in the rain, when he said I lied, I assumed he lied about there being much grass to scrape mud on.

Instead, Eric went on to say, I lied. There is one surprise on this trip

I turned around to find Eric down on one knee. In the rain. In Tuscany. Next to a beautiful vineyard and overlooking the most gorgeous view my eyes have ever seen.
