How We Met
Nick is in the army, and we met while he was stationed in Washington. We both love to do theatre, and we were paired together singing a duet in a musical review. We were friends for a couple of years, and then we were both there to pull each other out of slumps that we were in – and we realized how much better life was together! Nick ended up getting sent a few other places not long after we started dating, so we’ve been long distance for just under two years.
How They Asked
We knew he was going to be coming home for the holidays, so we planned this big vacation down to Disneyland over the week of Christmas. Everybody was going down with us – my parents, my brothers, my sister-in-law, and even my niece and nephew. We had a wonderful Christmas morning opening stockings and getting brunch, and then I was surprised by a card from Nick’s parents who had booked a massage for me later that morning. So my mom and sister-in-law and I had a ladies morning at the spa (that I later found out Nick had put together), and when I went upstairs I was met with champagne and a letter.
Nick had picked out a new dress and shoes for me, and set each member of my family up at a different one of our favorite places in the parks with another letter telling us where to go next! All leading to (my favorite place in the whole world) the wishing well by Sleeping Beauty’s castle. We all cried a little, and then we immediately called to tell his family. It meant so much to me that our families had been so involved, and I couldn’t have been happier!
