How They Asked
7 years ago, Clint poked me on Facebook, and the rest was history. We were lucky to find each other in high school, dated through college, and knew in our hearts we would be together forever. While vacationing in Maui with Clint’s family, our relationship took on a new meaning when he proposed.
On that fateful night, Clint’s family had planned on getting us all together for “family photos” after dinner. We typically take professional family photos each year in Hawaii, so this was not out of the ordinary. After dinner, Clint stepped away to take an “important business call” saying he would meet us later for photos. I walked with Clint’s family to the infinity pool where we were supposedly meeting the photographer.
As we rounded the corner, his family paused and let me walk ahead of them. Then I heard it- the music of our song, “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis, playing. I suddenly realized I was standing in front of the most romantic aisle of rose petals and candlelight, with the love of my life standing at the other end, waiting for me!!!! I have never been so surprised, or so happy, in my entire life. My heartfelt like it was going to burst as he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
