How We Met
Chris and I have been together for two years now. We met online and quickly hit it off. I was born and raised in Haiti and I am extremely family-oriented. In November Chris told me that he had invited my family to spend Christmas Eve together with us, I didn’t think too much of it since we have spent holidays together before. Fast forward to the day before the dinner, my mom asked me to come over her house to help her prepare the food for the dinner. I went and spent the night at my mom.
How They Asked
On December 24th, I went back home to get ready for dinner around 8:30 pm I noticed no one was there. I started panicking and calling everyone since dinner was scheduled for 8 pm.
A few minutes later Chris “ stormed out of the house and I followed him outside thinking he’s upset that no one showed up to the dinner and that’s why he asked me to follow him to the backyard and our song start playing “ best part “ by HER and he told me to close my eyes and walked to the backyard with him. At that moment, I just started to cry, I knew something big was about to happen.
When I opened my eyes Both our families were standing right there and he got on one knee and asked me to be his wife. He spent 9 hours setting up the backyard with lights, candles and rose pedals. He needed me out of the house to set up everything that’s why he told my mom to ask me to come over. They were in on it the entire time.
