ABC7 Chicago Meteorologist Cheryl Scott said she is feeling “on top of the world” after a sky-high proposal this weekend on top of the Haleakala volcano on Maui, Hawaii.

Dante Deiana, Scott’s longtime boyfriend, popped the question at the 10,000-foot summit of the volcano while the two were vacationing on the island.

The Chicago meteorologist announced their engagement on Instagram Saturday afternoon with a set of four photos, including one of Deiana down on one knee and a shot of the couple embracing, with Scott showing off her new ring.
