First off, I’d like to thank everyone who submitted their proposal story on our Valentine’s Day Giveaway Post. All of the stories were fabulous and completely romantic (perfect for V-day). Because all the stories were great, we had such a hard time deciding the winner so, we entered all the comments in a random generator and chose one at random.
Congratulations Karlee. Her proposal story is below:
Ours is a classic story of opposites attract. High school sweethearts turned into nine years of love, long distance, and pursuing individual dreams while gaining frequent flier miles and hefty phone bills. I was destined to be a city girl and moved to Manhattan upon college graduation while Ben remained in Oregon with his boat and 4-wheel drive. The only thing I loved more than NY was Ben so we debated back and forth what our next step would be. That’s what made the day he suprised me and flew to NY to propose on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade so special. Not to mention the fact that he flew my Oregonian family out to be there for a surprise sunset engagement party at the River Cafe overlooking the Manhattan skyline. The perfect day!
