So for those of you who are interested in hearing the magical proposal story, here it goes. Miguel (fiance) planned a weekend getaway to beautiful San Francisco in May of last year with the excuse of celebrating his birthday. It was the perfect disguised vacation in the middle of a busy quarter and tons of work, but somehow we managed. Miguel had been planning this vacation for months to make it extra special and boy did he achieve just that. We arrived on Friday and one of our first sight seeing spots was the beautiful Hendrick Point, located right on the hill over the Golden Gate Bridge. The view was amazing! The spot gave us a breath taking view of the Golden Gate Bridge and all of San Francisco. Miguel soon realized that this was the spot where the magic would happen, but not quite yet. On Saturday we had a very busy day visiting Alcatraz, the Aquarium of the Bay, and doing many fun activities at Pier 39. But Miguel kept insisting on going back to Hendrick Point. He managed to convince me, and later that evening we were back on Hendrick Point. It was chilly but we had each other to keep warm. The timing was perfect, we arrived right before sunset and we hurried to the top of the hill. Once at the top Miguel held me in his arms and whispered in my ears if I was enjoying our trip I without a doubt said I was loving it. Soon after the exchange of a few other words Miguel revealed his true intentions in bringing me to that exact spot and when I least expected it he dropped down on one knee, brought out a beautiful ring and said “Will you marry me?” I was speechless! I managed to say yes and we both began to cry. It was magical! There was a feeling of love and serenity in the atmosphere that is hard to describe, everything was perfect!
