I’m not even sure where to start. On Nov 5, 2014 I did my usual routine of dragging myself out of bed and getting to school. When I came home, I went to get food and saw this…. My favorite! Chocolate covered strawberries with white chocolate drizzled in my favourite colour….. and I was confused….. I thought okay my sisters must want something.
I went to my bedroom and saw that my door was shut (I knew something was up, my door is never shut unless I am home). I opened up my door and saw this….
The note had a few lovey dovey mushy things and instructed me to get dressed by 4:30 and my carriage awaits. So I got dressed, waited and my boyfriend Navin came to my house to pick me up. We went to his house and he blindfolded me. He drove (I tried to track his route in my head but I lost track). We got to our destination, he took me out and guided me inside carefully, because I had heels on and was blindfolded! He took my blindfold off and I had a huge smile on my face, then I looked around and I’m like “Oh we’re in Moxies hmmm…” (Moxie’s was our first dinner date). We had dinner, and he told me that we were going somewhere else afterwards. Then all of a sudden I hear Rihanna’s We Found Love playing (which was the first song we danced to on our first date – first date was on my birthday) and he went down on one knee, pulled out the ring, mumbled something and all I understood was “Will you marry me?” I said yes!
His best friend took some photos of us, and Navin blindfolded me again, and we were on our way to the second destination. When we arrived, I heard my mom laughing and giggling. When he took the blindfold off, everyone was sitting down at the table waiting for me. But it was my Dad’s birthday as well! So we celebrated my Dad’s birthday and our engagement.
At the end of the night we took a few other photos to reenact the proposal moment for everyone else, and we even took a photo in front of his second wife (his car)!
It turns out that my sisters were in on everything! They knew if Navin told me to get ready to go out, I would have put on sweats and a t-shirt, so they made sure that I dressed appropriately. He asked my parents for their approval few weeks before he planned the proposal and they were overjoyed. And we are now planning our wedding for July 2016 with the amazing Whim Team. #SheSaidYesTdot
