My fiancé, Austin, and I were able to take a trip to California to see his family over Christmas break. We are both high school teachers and coaches, so we were really excited to spend time away with family. When we arrived in California, his parents wanted to take the whole family to Reno, Nevada. The scenery there is gorgeous! His little sister wanted to take a family picture on top of the mountain for her photography class so we drove around until we found the perfect spot. Of course I wanted a picture on my phone of Austin and I, and as I was walking away I noticed everyone staring at me. I turned around and there he was, on one knee! Of course I cried like a baby (typical, I know). I was and still am so thrilled that I get to spend forever with my best friend!
