On the plane ride to NYC, John randomly asked me what were the 3 places in NY that I would want to be when I would be proposed to. I thought it was a strange question figuring we were on the way to NY but I did not think anything of it and told him my dream place was Central park, but anywhere else would do. We had just arrived in NYC and I noticed everyone in our group was acting funny. They kept smiling at me and asking me how happy I was. We had an agenda for each day we were in the city, however we started making detours to different places. One of the detours was to Central Park. John started taking me up the hill to this small gazebo and kept looking back to see if anyone was coming with us. I thought this was very strange but paid no attention to it because everyone had been acting strange the entire day. He then looked at me and gave me a huge hug while digging into his back pocket. At that moment I started to tear up as he dropped to one knee and popped the question. I am now the proud fiancé of an airman!
