We both just wanted to say a quick hello from Paris - update forthcoming! - to celebrate our engagement here. I proposed to Sheila during our hike of Mt. Rigi, on June 17th, and she said yes!
It was a joy-filled day for the both of us, complete with celebratory Prosecco, which we enjoyed via larger-than-average gelato containers that we found right before getting the boat back to Lucerne.
You can imagine Simon’s confusion, upon our return to his place, when he found the empty bottle of Prosecco - especially before we told him the good news! 🤣
We were grateful to be able to share the news with family and friends before making a larger announcement. I know, in looking back on the past month, that the initial first days and the closeness that we felt in the aftermath of the proposal will stay with me for the rest of my life.
