Here's Why This Mountain-Top Marriage Proposal Is Going Viral

It's just so darn sweet.

For four years now, Lyd and her girlfriend, Meg, have been taking instant photos of their adventures together. Over the weekend, they were taking a hike in New York's Minnewaska state park when Lyd suggested taking a photo of Meg standing at the top of the mountain, looking out at the view. Afterwards, Lyd said, "Let's look back at our photos to see if they developed properly."

Here is what Meg saw:

Obviously, Meg said yes to the proposal, and put on the ring, which is sterling silver flowers and branches with a rainbow moonstone set in.

It's been a rough few weeks for love. Just a few weeks ago, adored Hollywood couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum announced they were separating after 9 years of marriage. And the details surrounding the "love story" between Vanessa and Donald Trump Jr., who are also getting divorced, showed that some people were mismatched from the very beginning. So it's nice to know that love exists, and it is out there, high up on a mountain peak. And for more heartwarming love stories, check out How 50 Famous Men Wooed the Women of Their Dreams.
