Chad and I were lucky enough to be on vacation with my family in California in April of 2013. After visiting the Redwoods in the morning and suffering through the winding coastal road, we all stopped at Jug Handle Beach (I can't make this stuff up). Despite its lackluster name, everything about the beach was perfect.
We were the only people there, the cliffs wrapping the ocean were beautiful, and the bridge high above us made me feel like we were in our own hidden cubby of the world. Chad's proposal was so sincere and so surreal, I will treasure the moment forever!
