Alicia and Brandon

imageHow we met: Brandon and I have been together almost 10 years now. We were high school and college sweethearts.

How he asked: My sister and I had some Christmas shopping to do. The day prior to when we planned on going, she told me she hadn’t brought her children to see Santa yet and asked if I minded if her husband brought them to the mall to meet up with us. Of course I didn’t mind. While we were waiting in line, my sister suggested we sit in Santa’s lap, too, because it had been so many years. I figured, why not? After the children had their turn, my sister and I got onto Santa’s lap. He asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Before I could even tell him, he told me to turn around. There Brandon was on one knee! I will never forget what he said. “We have been together 10 years now. I want to spend the next 100 years with you. Will you marry me?” Of course I said yes! To top off this perfect proposal, I hear a lot of cheering. Of course there were a ton of onlookers, but I see both of our entire families and friends hiding upstairs in the food court! Best day of my life.
