From Lovely Leaf Studio… Ming & Travis vacationed in St. John after she completed her 3rd yr of medical school. On the first day after arrival, Travis was really protective and watchful of his backpack while swimming at Hawksnest. On the second day, just before heading to dinner after a wonderful day at Honeymoon Beach, Travis suggested a leisurely walk along an overlook. Because Travis was acting funny, Ming got suspicious and nervous too. At the top of the hill by a bench, they looked out over ocean and saw a beautiful rainbow. They finally got into the car and while turning the car around, Travis abruptly stopped. He had stalled 3 times already – at two gorgeous beaches and with a rainbow backdrop overlooking a sunset. He knew that no matter how many times he stalled, he would be just as nervous.  He got out, opened Ming’s door, knelt down on one knee, and presented the ring he had been closely guarding the whole trip. SHE SAID YES! She was shocked, he was in shock, and it was really quiet for a few moments. Eventually they made it to dinner and started celebrating!
