How We Met

Ernesto & I met in a Spanish class in high school. We were friends and started dating when I was in college.

How They Asked

For our 10-year anniversary, we were driving from San Francisco to Big Sur along the Pacific Coast Highway, stopping along the way for all the beautiful views. In the Garrapata State Park area, we stopped and walked down a trail, seeing a rabbit in our path. When we got to the vista point, I took pictures while he propped up his phone in a bush.

I thought it was so we could take a picture together and asked if it was on self-timer. He said yes, so I posed but he kissed my cheek and then got down on one knee! I was so surprised. He had been planning it for a while and even arranged for a professional photographer to take photos of us the following day in San Francisco. We finished our road trip and on the way back to San Francisco, we stopped for dinner at a nice restaurant in Santa Cruz.
