We were on vacation and went to the Grand Canyon. Windy and cold (below average temperature in April), he ushered me off the beaten path to get a closer look of the Canyon. As I gazed at this natural wonder, he called me over and motioned me to sit next to him on this huge rock. He proposed right there. I can't ask for a more memorable (and beautiful) location.
I tried to call my dad and couldn't get in touch with him, then FI told me my dad already knew! He already had his blessing
I called my mom later in the day:
Me: Mom, I'm engaged!
Mom: Does "J" know (my FI)?
My mom thinks she's a comedian
