Katie and Doug are engaged! A couple months ago Doug and I grabbed a drink and he asked for my help with ring shopping. Of course I was all over that, but it was SO hard to keep the secret from Katie! Apparently it was for Doug too, but it worked out for the best because they were able to pick out a ring Katie absolutely loves together.
The proposal happened a couple weekends ago on the Oregon coast in a deluxe yurt and we were so excited to toast to the happy couple Monday evening once they returned! We started with champagne and at some point moved to making French 75s (sort of.) Basically a lazy version of these is still really delish!
A little gin, a little champagne, a squeeze of lemon and a maraschino cherry. The perfect celebratory cocktail. Cheers to the happy couple!
