Engaging Propositions

So, I am back in Iowa City. Chris picked me up from the airport in Moline, IL and we got to spend a few days together before it was time to start practicing grad style :) We had a great time, and as most of my readers already know...we got engaged! We couldn't be happier-- what a wonderful way to start the school year. We don't have any set wedding plans. I need to hash out  a few details as far as where I pursue my doctorate. Nevertheless, we are super excited and so lucky to have great families and friends to share this special time with!

We went to dinner at the Motley Cow Cafe, a place that I walk by every day but have never been.

Then we went for a walk through downtown Iowa City. We stopped to sit in the grass at the Pentacrest, and that's where he asked me and I said, "Yes! Thank you!"

I will post pictures of my ring and our hiking trip to the Palisades when my internet connection is a bit better.



  1. YAY!!!! :D I love that you said "Thank you" afterwards. Such a Jessy-thing to say...

  2. Ha! You still win for "best reaction" :)
