Jacobs and Lawless
Jeff Jacobs, the 50-year-old son of Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs, has popped the question to 29-year-old La Jolla fashionista and organic-juice entrepreneur Annie Lawless.
“We arrived at Post Ranch Inn and our room wasn’t quite ready yet, so we had drinks and snacks by the fire,” she writes in an October 31 post on her blog, blawnde.com, about the big event on a recent trip to Big Sur. “Once we checked in, boyfriend went to go workout on the bike and I hopped in the shower to get ready for my birthday dinner at Sierra Mar, Post Ranch’s restaurant. When he came back, he started a fire in our wood burning fireplace and a bottle of rosé arrived that he had ordered so we could watch the sunset together by the fire. What happened next made this birthday the most memorable, special, and best day of my life. Without getting into too much detail, boyfriend asked me to marry him. And I said yes…DUH!”
Adds Lawless: “The rest of the night (and trip) was a happy blur in our love bubble. We hiked our favorite path in the woods twice, we got massages in the treehouse spa, we went to our other favorite restaurant, Nepenthe, and soaked in our private Jacuzzi. We snuggled, we laughed, we cried, and decided to enjoy the whole experience to ourselves before telling anyone. We were engaged on Sunday and not a single person knew until we were back on Wednesday. On our way back to SD, we stopped for one last dinner in Santa Barbara at our favorite spot, Bouchon.”
