It's been two years since Radley proposed. Two years since I met him in the lobby of a Chicago hotel to "grab drinks" before date night on my favorite day of the year — the day of the city's 4th of July fireworks. I'll never forget the look on his face, so excited and nervous and adorably boyish.
We took a lot of pictures that day, obviously, but this one may just be my favorite. Blurry, faded, and in the moment, both of us wearing the biggest, scrunched-up-nose smiles. Best.
