How did you meet?: We always saw each other at school but we didn’t formally meet until the summer after junior year. When I arrived to the arcade, Brandon was already there. He was acting a fool trying to impress me and even asked me for my number. Of course I thought he asked for friendly reasons but Brandon had his own intentions (he wasted no time and texted me that same day!). Shortly after, Brandon would be throwing rolled-up napkins at me during lunch and bothering me in the hallways. He says he wasn’t flirting but we all know the truth. After 5 years of friendship, Brandon asked me on a date, which consisted of a hike, ham and cheese sandwiches, Moscato, and apples by the Potomac river.
When & Where did the proposal take place?: Old Town Alexandria on Feb 24th, 2019.
Tell us how they asked?: No one let anything slip but that morning I knew…today is the day Brandon is going to propose. I don’t know why, but I just knew today was the day. I made sure to do my hair and not wear leggings just in case it was actually the day! We headed to our favorite place, Old Town Alexandria, for brunch. As we ate, talked, and walked around the town, Brandon seemed extremely distracted. So much so, he didn’t even realize that I was walking in the opposite direction than him! As we came back together and walked towards Waterfront Park, I noticed that the park was filled with flower petals, signs, and our loved ones. I couldn’t even talk or read the signs because my eyes were filled with tears. I cried my eyes out and said yes to my best friend!
