Stephanie and I had an amazing dinner at Chez TJ near downtown Mountain view for her Gigasecond (her one billionth second).  The food was amazing, and only one wine wasn’t to our liking.  During the night she asked me what goals I had for that year, and I smoothly reached in my pocket for the box with the ring and said “I wanted to ask you this question.”  I waited for her to open the box, and it was empty, but not on purpose.  I did a quick reset pulling the ring out of my pocket where it had fallen out of the box, and asked her to marry me.  She said yes, and the rest of the dinner was fantastic.  I really enjoy doing anything and nothing with Stephanie, as she is a pleasure to spend time with in all circumstances.


here is her new ring, so cute!
