Danielle and Joel

how they asked: I went to Chicago on a girls trip with two of my college friends. It was a Friday morning, we got breakfast before our scheduled kayak tour of the city. We had some time to kill and one of my friends suggested we take a walk in Oz Park.

No one was in the park that morning, I’m taking in the scenery, talking my friends ears off, then I look up and see Joel walking towards me “Danielle, these have been the best three years of my life, let’s make it forever, will you marry me?”

He rented a car from our home in Ohio, drove 7 hours Thursday night, stayed in a hotel, and surprised me the next morning. What a beautiful, unforgettable trip it turned out to be.
