Here's another new word to add to your scrabble game -- Proposaversary:) It's when Ryan and I celebrate the day he proposed to me every year at The Griffith Observatory. It is by far my favorite place in LA and I love returning every year to celebrate and relive that joyful moment when he knelt on the roof of the observatory, under the stars and the approving moon, and asked me to marry him:) Every time I go back to that gorgeous building, so peaceful and high above the city, I can't help but feel little prickles of magic and excitement. I'm grateful that Mr. Griffith J Griffith had the foresight to create such a beautiful monument. And I'm thankful that we get to have such an amazing place to call "our place".


  1. I love your engagement story. How wonderfully romantic! Happy Proposaversary. (That's a mouthful. Say it ten times fast!)

  2. Were edged weapons involved...? click ;-)

    Some gurlz adore a clever duel. :)

  3. Seriously... With sapphire and heart, Ryan exalted his wished upon star that ensorcelled night.

  4. A song to commemorate a night the Heavens still rejoice...

  5. And it truly and OFFICIALLY is "our place" now. Or... at least a chair of it is. HURRAY for owning part of Griff's beautiful gateway to the sky!

  6. Haha! Thankfully there were no rumbles that night. Although a lovely brass bust of that dear Rebel looked on nearby:)
