It was an amazing turn of events for me this past Saturday. My best friend and longtime boyfriend of nearly seven years decided to make it official and proposed to me at the tip of Battery Park! It was truly a magical New York City moment that neither of us will ever forget...

The day started off with what seemed like a typical Saturday morning for us in the city- an early spin class at Soul Cycle, coffee and a stroll through the Tribeca Farmer's Market on our walk back to my apartment. We quickly showered and changed in order to head back downtown to enjoy the beautiful, sunny day. Little did I know that our seemingly typical walk down the West Side Highway would quickly turn into a day of endless surprises. After his amazingly sweet proposal and private lunch under a canopy looking out to the Statue of Liberty, we were greeted by our parents who flew in from Chicago to toast us with champagne and incredible well wishes. Nothing could have been sweeter. Shortly after that, I was treated to an afternoon of bliss including a manicure, pedicure and a blow-out (my favorite beauty treatment!) to get ready for an intimate family celebration at one of our most cherished New York City restaurants, Il Buco.

Honestly, the day was such a thrill and so much fun, but at the same time felt incredibly natural and very much like 'us'- which makes me know it's right. He planned the day so perfectly to include all our most sentimental moments from our past and ended with an outlook to an incredibly bright future...
we are truly blessed! I love you.
For all of you that follow B&B on Instagram, thanks for all your sweet notes! What a fun weekend.
