It really, actually, perfectly happened... I got engaged!

So, I am not quite sure how I did it, or why she agreed to it... but somehow I convinced someone to marry me. Adrienne Jo Rasmussen said yes to me last night around about 8:00pm and has made me the luckiest, most blessed man I know.


Because I know you all wonder, here is a little bit of the story.

We went out to get sushi for dinner because she loves anything and everything Japanese! Had a great dinner and then headed out to the Salt Flats to take pictures of the sunset. We walked around, I played with my camera, and she just watched me and talked to me. I finally got my camera set up the way I wanted it to and then was just "testing" a few shots. She looked away at the mountains and I grabbed the rings (yes, I said rings) and put them in my pockets. I talked to her a little longer and was already down on a knee when I pulled out the fake ring and popped the question. She just looked at me for a moment and I said to her, "This is the ring you wanted, isn't it?" She looked at me again, then down at the ring and said, "Really?" She didn't even answer my question, so I said to her, "Oh wait, no, this isn't it," reached into my pocket pulled out the real ring and said, "This is the ring, will you marry me?" She said yes and kissed me, and here is the proof of it all. Enjoy the pictures!









P.S. I think this is the most normal picture we have, and my face is still squished, but it is one of my favs because it is the first time we said we loved each other!
