Well, a few days into our trip, we went to Garden Valley to look at a wedding venue, and it snowed. You should have seen how excited Sarah was to see snow. Whenever there are flakes of white stuff falling from the sky, she turns into a wide-eyed excitable child - she is without a doubt her happiest self in the snow, and I love that so much about her.
So when we got to NYC, we decided to re-inact the proposal exactly as I would have done it, on the day, and time. Which is how I learned it would have been the WORST PROPOSAL EVER!
|Boarded up Brooklyn Bridge|
Halfway along, we were greeted with a nice surprise - a beautiful lesbian couple were getting married on the bridge!! So lovely, and like every other tourist there, I took a picture.
|Anyone happen to know who they are?|
|Photobombed by the most unimpressed looking tourist ever.|

Once we made it to the promenade, I realised the restaurant I had planned to take Sarah to (The River Cafe) was closed, unfortunately due to Hurricane Sandy damages. It turned out, all the restaurants in the area were closed except Grimaldi's Pizza, which had a line around the block!
|Way to toot your own horn, Brooklyn|
We made our way out onto the Promenade, and complainy-Sarah didn't want to sit down and enjoy the view, because 'it was too cold' - way to ruin a moment, S! We took a few photos, I thought about how happy I was I hadn't proposed there, we were waiting for the sunset, and the unbelievable happened.
|You can kind of see what I was going for, it's pretty, right?|
|As we were getting kicked out of the park|
I was happy before knowing this that I had proposed in McCall, but that day I was thanking my lucky stars.
