I had been studying in Peru for 5 weeks. Though our whole relationship has been long distance, 3,000 miles was a new one for us. We had a rough time towards the end, but we pushed through. I knew he was staying at my house the weekend I was coming home. Little did I know he was asking my father’s permission and showing off my ring to my entire family. As I walked up the terminal I saw him holding a sign with my name on it. It wasn’t until I saw my brother with a video camera that I knew something was up. As I got closer he flipped the sign around that read “Will you marry me?” It was the best homecoming I could have ever imagined.
