How They Asked
It was a beautiful day in Chicago and I thought I was going to a charity event with my best friend. We got our nails done and got ready together playing our favorite songs. As we got escorted to the rooftop cupola of the London House hotel, easily one of the most romantic spots on the river, I saw roses on the ground and heard our song playing. On a small table with a bottle of champagne laid a journal. It wasn’t just any journal. It was the journal he gave to me for Christmas years ago. Every special occasion (birthday, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day) he writes my letter on a new page.
As I walked up to it, I saw there was a flower bookmarking what page to turn to. I stood there and read the sweetest words I will probably ever read or hear and at the end, it said “I just have to ask you one question now…” and it was a fairy-tale moment as I turned around and saw him there on one knew. After I said yes, our families and some of my closest friends came from around the corner. I could not have dreamed of a more perfect proposal!!!
