How We Met
Cristo and I have known each other since we were about 15 years old.
If I had known back then, what I know now…the only thing I would change is that I would have started dating him sooner!! But, you know what..we built such an amazing foundation of friendship that strengthened our relationship and made it what it is today.
We started as nothing more than just friends and all these years later, we have made our relationship into something that will last forever. I don’t know who I’d be without this man, without his love, but I can tell you I am whole with him. He is my person, my best friend, the end-all-be-all, happily ever after.
How They Asked
I am not an easy person to surprise…but when I tell you that Cristo surprised me, he REALLY surprised me.
He had my entire family involved (which was beyond sweet + incredibly special to me). Months of planning on his part + some small white lies + everyone’s participation really made his plan work (and left me totally oblivious).
I was driven to a hotel in DC (the hotel where Cristo asked me to be his girlfriend 2 years ago–aka: my place of “yes”) and unknowingly walked into the most magical + happiest moment of my life. My heart literally felt as if it was bursting at the seams with love. I started sobbing hysterically as he dropped to one knee, vowed to love me endlessly, and asked me to spend forever with him.
Words cannot even describe the overwhelming feelings of gratitude and happiness. God seriously blessed me tremendously with this guy that I now call MY FIANCE!!
