how they asked
Kody and I had been together for 9 years before this most perfect day happened! We started dating at 15 years old, in high school. He knew he wanted to make my proposal a total surprise, and after talking it over with my family and his he decided to do it at my family’s annual Christmas cookie bake. Cookie bake is a huge family event that we do every year, and we also wear ugly Christmas sweaters.
A few weeks before the proposal I kept telling him that my sweater was going to be the most awesome sweater, better than everyone else’s.
He said to me that he actually had the most amazing sweater, and little to my surprise he did. Kody ordered a custom sweater that said “will you merry me?” on it. I was working on the cookies when my family and friends gathered in the kitchen and Kody walked into the kitchen wearing his “ugly Christmas sweater”. He got down on one knee and proposed in front of everyone (about 50 people)! It was the most magical day of my life!
