I just got engaged!!!! To the love of my life, my soulmate, the most amazing man in the universe–a teacher, a pilot, a caring, kind, funny, inspiring, generous, thoughtful person, who I met on the island of Little Diomede (right by Russia, on the international dateline, at the edge if the world)! On Saturday, the day before the solstice. On the Bering Sea!!!!
I must say, I was completely surprised. When he knelt down, I thought he was checking out the ice, or maybe thinking about going crabbing, or so inspired by the beauty of the solstice sun, orange on the horizon. Then pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him!!!! I knelt down beside him and said “a million times, yes!”
Alaska holds all sorts of beauty, surprises and adventures! And I guess when you are meant to be with someone, you can find them at the end of the Earth. I think a destination wedding to somewhere in Alaska is coming up soon… Maybe on the island of Little Diomede.
