Life has been a bit crazy the past few weeks to say the least – so what do you do when you come across the photos your fiancé was taking as a distraction to proposing? You share them! Here are a few of the photos taken for a “blog post” shortly before Joe walked up to me with a ring to pop the question!

I’m sure glad I wasn’t in sweat pants or yoga pants this day (even though it was a little chilly in California)! And yes – I was surprised. I’m just glad I packed a “winery outfit” for the trip and wasn’t feeling completely lazy in the morning. Again – I had some great friends helping me out with a brush and letting me borrow their straightener and jewelry that morning! Wow, can’t believe it’s been more than three months since this moment! If you’re engaged or married, what were you wearing when the proposal happened?
