It has been a whirlwind of a month! As those of you who follow us on Instagram may know, I'm engaged to an amazing man :D. After finishing up my MBA program, my sweet significant other treated me to a European getaway in Paris. Little did I know what he had planned, as he was being somewhat difficult leading up to the trip (apparently to throw me off the trail)! They say hindsight is 20-20. This is how it all happened!

One of the things I love to do when on vacation is document everything via lots and lots of photographs :). I think that photos are the best kind of souvenir and help bring me back to that moment in time. Plus, they are free! Because of this, you can often find me toting my Lo&Sons bag filled to the brim with my DSLR, alternate camera lenses, and my GoPro when traveling. The day I got engaged was no exception - clever Trey told me that there was an uncrowded bridge with incredible views of the Eiffel Tower. That was enough to get me out of bed bright and early for a quick breakfast in Champs Elysee followed by a hike to Pont de Bir-Hakeim.

I guess a photo is worth a thousand words, so I'll let the photos tell the story from here!

^Trey said that he wanted to snap some photos of me on the bridge - I should have known then that he was up to something! He is more of a landscape photo kind of guy then a portrait person ;). One of the sneaky and extremely sweet things that Trey did was hire a photographer to capture the moments. I had no idea any of this was going on, and it probably required a good deal of coordination/secrecy. As someone who is extremely family oriented, this meant a lot to me because the memories could be shared with those who were not there with us! A big thank you to Lindsay from Pictours Paris for capturing everything! I love him.
