The night before Christmas Eve, Ryan and I went to a friend’s holiday party but dipped out early to get dinner and dessert at one of our favorite small plate restaurants. We were making up for celebrating our anniversary since I was in the hospital then and having a Crohn’s related surgery. After dinner, at our house, Ryan asked if I wanted to take a picture. I posed in front of the tripod waiting for him, and then he asked if I wanted an early Christmas present. Yes, of course, duh! So he handed me a View Master full of our pictures from the past two years. When I looked down, he was there on one knee with the ring!
