My fiancé Jeff and I were on vacation in Hawaii. While on our trip, we had decided to climb Diamond Head, an inactive volcano on Oahu. Halfway up, I had an asthma attack. Realizing that I had left my inhaler behind in the car, we stopped to sit and rest. After about 20 minutes, I decided to continue up the mountain. We walked up slowly so I would not over-exert myself. At the top, it was crowded, but it was a perfectly clear day. We were able to see off into the distance. Off to the side, I leaned over the rail, just taking in the view. Jeff came behind me and put his arms around me. He said quietly, "Do you know how much I love you? I love you this much." He then pulled out the ring from his pocket. I was completely shocked. After dating for seven years, the man who couldn't keep my Christmas present a surprise had completely taken me away. We had another couple take our picture at the top of Diamond Head to keep as the first photo of us as an engaged couple. We walked down that trail as an engaged couple!
