Of course I said yes

My favorite person in the world proposed to me yesterday. I was totally surprised and thrilled and speechless. We sat for a long time on our little fire escape, drinking champagne and just being happy.



We're a little overwhelmed by everyone's response, but I think Jon's grandmother perhaps had the cutest reaction of all. "The ring will sparkle while she's knitting," she said.
