How We Met
We met in junior high when I was in Grade 9 and he was in grade 10. We met through a mutual friend.
We only talked for about a week before he asked me out back in 2011 and we’ve been deeply in love ever since. Our parents thought it was just a summer fling but we both knew this is what true love feels like.
how they asked
I had absolutely no idea that he was planning on proposing during our trip to Cuba. However oddly enough a week before we were leaving for our trip I dreamt that he proposed! I had Him all worried thinking he thought I figured It out somehow but I still Had no idea. When we were down South in Cuba we got all dressed up and went to one of the à la Cartes for supper. Then we went for a walk on the beach to watch the sunset and I wanted To get some pictures on my camera of the sun setting.
As I was Busy turned away taking my pictures he was getting down on one knee and he started to say “do you remember that dream you had the other day?” Right then I knew What he was talking about I turned Around and there he was on one knee telling me how much he loved me and how he wanted to Be with me for the rest of our lives (to have an endless sleepover as he puts it).
He wanted to propose during the sun setting because he knows how much I love sunsets; I was So caught up in the moment that I almost Missed the best part of the sunset that evening. It was definitely one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen the sky was so pink and the way it made that crystal clear water sparkle was just amazing. There wasn’t one other beautiful sunset like that one during our whole week there so I just Know that was a sign that this is right ❤️
