16: HOW WE MET Grace's sister-in-law Lisa and David's friend's wife Minnie set us up. Lisa and Minnie were at a wedding and they thought that we would be perfect together. And they were right! Thanks Lisa and Minnie!
17: OUR FIRST DATE After dinner, Grace took David to see the architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall. When they got there, David surprised her with tickets to the concert 'Capucon Plays Korngold' by the LA Philharmonic.
18: OUR FIRST KISS We had a delicious brunch at Serious Biscuit & Pie in Seattle and we went to our car and continued to talk and laugh. Rain was falling outside and the moment was perfect: our first kiss!
19: OUR FIRST 'I LOVE YOU' We were at one of our favorite restaurants MB Post. On the menu, David had written 'I love you' for Grace. When Grace saw it, she said 'You said you would only say that to the person you marry.' David nodded 'Yes, I love you' and Grace responded 'I love you too!'
21: OUR PROPOSAL It took a while for David to formally propose to Grace. With the long distance, Grace joked to David that 'You will probably send the ring by UPS and have the UPS driver propose for you.' So David did! He sent the ring by UPS and the UPS driver knocked on Grace's door, got down his knees, held up the UPS Express box, and asked Grace, 'Will you marry David?" Right then, David stepped in, took the UPS box from the driver, got down on his knees, and asked Grace, 'Will you marry me?' Surprised and happy, Grace said, 'Yes!'
