How We Met

It was a Tuesday afternoon.. I was checking my messages on LinkedIn when all of a sudden I saw the “people you may know” section suggest for me to add this adorably cute woman. I added her and shortly after we connected. She even endorsed me! I was quick to thank her and we began talking. We immediately clicked right from the beginning. We chatted which quickly led to phone calls. We would talk from 7 pm all the way to 7 am the next morning where I got zero sleep but a stomach full of butterflies. All I could think about day in and day out was the opportunity to call her again and talk to her for hours on end. She was the best friend I always wanted and the woman I dreamed of marrying. Fast forward 3 weeks we decided to meet in person for the first time as we didn’t live in the same city. I parked my car in the parking lot where she said she would be. My heart was racing faster than a Ferrari at this point and as soon as I walked up to her and hugged her I was calm and excited that this was becoming real. She was flawless, her smile, her eyes, her cute laughs, I fell for her more and more every time I came in contact with her. I knew at that moment I may have found the woman I would spend the rest of my life with.

how they asked

It was a bright and sunny day. I told my my gorgeous girlfriend that I would like to go for a nice hike by the water. I suggested my sister to come because they had become such close friends. Mind you my sister knew exactly what was planned and had her camera ready. We walked up to a cliff where all you could see was the ocean. It was sentimental to me because the ocean reminded me of the endless love I had for her. The sun reminded me of the warmth she brought to my heart and the edge of the cliff reminded me of the jump I was about to make in asking her to marry me. We were holding hands with my sister a few steps behind us. We were just in awe of the mesmerizing view and I pointed at something in the distance and said, “Hey babe look at how beautiful that is.” She looked hard to see what I was pointing at only to turn and see my on my knee.

She covered her mouth and eyes in excitement. I said to her: “Babe you are everything I ever dreamed of, you are the woman I have been searching for and I can’t imagine my life without you in it. I need a queen in my life in order to build an empire together. I love you more than anything in this world and I would like to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” And she said yes! Wedding is on September 30th. Can’t wait :)
