I may have only been back from Japan for a handful of weeks, but one year ago today we closed on our house and became residents of Oregon. I am indebted to all the work Emily put into making this house our home while I was an ocean away. Now we're together, completing projects, making waffles and singing to cats.
On August 7, I asked Emily to marry me. She is the most amazing, loving, supportive and beautiful woman in my life. I can't think of a future without her. It was a beautiful day at Hitachi Seaside Park and the moment couldn't have been more perfect.
