Winter Proposal (& my rose gold engagement ring) Pictures at long last! Lake Arrowhead, CA
So this is quite delayed. It would have been fitting to have posted this in December AKA one year later, but alas, May it is. Time for a quick journey back in time to post about our engagement (and hopefully wedding/honeymoon eventually too)! Click read more to see pictures and read about the details!
When I was younger I had always imagined a proposal during winter around Christmas time – there was always something just so magical about it to me. At some point I think I had told Trav this. He planned a weekend getaway with a stay at the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa which is near Big Bear. Side note: I really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would love to do so again.
The actual proposal happened after dinner when a waiter brought a card and rose which then lead me to a second set up with card #2 (and more roses). That eventually led me to the third spot, where after I read card #3, Trav was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He got a very, very happy yes! from me and a lot of tears. It wasn’t a huge surprise because we knew we wanted to get married and I’m very perceptive (so no matter what it would have been hard to “sneak” a complete surprise in) but there was still some mystery. It was such a beautiful, special moment in our lives that I will forever be grateful for and cherish.

So here’s a little bit more info on the engagement Ring Trav got me.
He purchased the setting from Brilliant Earth and the diamonds from Gallery of Diamonds (a local jeweler). It is a 1.7kt diamond ring (center is 1.2) with a 14kt rose gold setting. It is literally absolute perfection and what my jewelry dreams are made of. I absolutely love my ring and so does he (I had actually pinned the setting several times on Pinterest lol). The rose gold is so soft, delicate and unique. Every day I look down and see my ring and am so grateful that Trav chose me…
…and continues to choose me every single day. My best friend, life partner and my greatest love. I love you so.
