From the Bride-to-be…
When Kevin and I, first started dating, he would tell me “fairytales” and use us as the main characters. I was the princess, and he was my prince. After a few months of dating and storytelling, he took me to Griffith Observatory, and asked me to be his girlfriend by putting together all “our fairytales” into one storybook. The last chapter of that book said “to be continued…”
Five and a half years later, he continued that story. On the day of the proposal, he took me to four places, each one meaningful to our relationship. The first location was where we had our first date, and the last location was where he asked me to be his girlfriend. At Griffith Observatory, he took me back to “our spot,” and turned me around to overlook the city. As we turned, he handed me another storybook! It was the continuation of “our fairytale,” and included tales and pictures from throughout the years. Thoughts kept running through my head as I turned each page. Once I reached the last page, it said “The prince always wanted to make his princess happy, and he could not imagine spending his life without her so he said…” It was then that he got down on one knee and asked “Will you marry me?” Without a doubt, I said “Yes!” Then, I cried a little (okay, maybe a lot). I was then surprised by our family and close friends. It was the most perfect proposal that I could ever imagine, and I can’t wait to spend happily ever after with my prince charming.
