Evelyn and Carlos
How We Met
We met 7 years ago at our old church. The moment we laid eyes on each other we knew we were meant to be. After several months of just talking, he asked me to be his girlfriend on May 7, 2015, and we’ve been dating ever since!
How They Asked
It was Christmas Eve and our families were gathered at my house. We had dinner and I could tell he was nervous about something. I asked him what was wrong and he answered, “nothing.” We continued the party and played games and he mentioned he had forgotten a gift at his apartment so we rushed to go get it. When we got back to my house he said he had a Christmas present waiting for me. He said it was pretty big so I needed to cover my eyes.
When I did, he took me to my backyard where it was beautifully decorated and our whole family was there anxiously waiting. Our favorite songs were playing and as I took the scarf off my eyes I saw the balloons where it said: “Marry Me?” I began sobbing and as I walked to him he got on one knee and asked me to be his forever!
