Allen and I have traveled the world together and every trip has been a fun, adventure filled experience. We already have so many precious memories that we share. We had already talked about getting married - planning our lives together. But really, we hadn't made any formal decisions or gotten officially engaged.
Anne: Allen told me that he had a piece to write on Oahu and wanted me to come keep him company. That was the story anyway.
Allen: Yes that was the story. But in reality it was a romantic getaway to Hawaii. Often when we travel we stay at modest accomodations. But I knew on this trip I was going to ask Anne to marry me so I wanted it to be special.
Anne: It WAS special. And I was so surprised. I still had no idea that Allen had anything up his sleeve. I thought this was all part of the article he was writing.
Allen: Hawaii has the most beautiful beaches! I wasn’t sure where I wanted to propose but one evening at sunset we were sitting on the beach outside the and I knew that's where (and right then!) I wanted to ask Alyssa to marry me. I did and she said YES. I still can't believe it!
