How They Asked
We started planning our trip about six months before. It was going to be my first time in Europe and my first time taking an international flight. We spent our first day in Barcelona wandering the beautiful city. And the second day will be the day I will never forget. The morning of the proposal I was planning to wear a sundress and sneakers because I knew we were going to be walking around a lot.
Kevin’s mom came to me and said: “wear your prettiest dress today because we are going to take lots of pictures!” So I changed right before we left for our day. We took a subway to the Parc De La Ciutadella where he was going to ask me. In the subway on the way there, he took my left hand and took a ring off my middle finger. He put it on his pinky and I had honestly no idea what was happening. I just wonder why he didn’t give it back. So as we were walking through the park taking pictures and sightseeing we approached this beautiful fountain.
He made it seem like his mom and sister were going to take pictures of us in front of the fountain. He looked at me and said, “Baby I want to be with you forever, will you marry me?” He got down on one knee and opened up the ring box with the most stunning ring inside. I was shaking and crying and I couldn’t believe this was happening. I took a deep breath and confidently said YES. He got up and I couldn’t stop hugging him. It was honestly everything I have ever dreamed of as a young girl. It couldn’t have gotten any more perfect than it was.
