Our Day at the Zoo

I am happy to announce that the bf and I are engaged!
It happened last Tuesday at the Bronx Zoo, which was the site of
our first date 5 years ago.

It was perfect.

We walked around the zoo all day, I said hello to every animal,
and we had such a great time.

So after the sea lion feeding (which was AWESOME!) We walked over
to a pond that we had passed earlier. The bf said that he couldn't believe that
we were here 5 years ago, and I agreed. Then he held my hands and I
immediately started to cry, haha! He said all kinds of lovely things,
and then got down on one knee. Of course I said yes.

But it didn't end there!! I was told that this was not going to be the
end of our day. We had an 8pm reservation at Asiate which is in the Mandarin
Oriental. One of our dearest friends also happens to be the exec. chef there.
It was epic. 10 courses, with pairings, a table overlooking the city-it was surreal.
We enjoyed every minute of it, and were so grateful to Angie and her
culinary genius.

It was one of the most magical days that I have ever had.
I feel like one of the luckiest ladies on the planet, and I cannot
wait to marry this man.
