Becky and Craig

Craig and I have known each other since I was a freshman in high school, which was about 10 years ago. We had always been close friends and stayed friends throughout college. On January 1st 2013 Craig took me on our first date and ever since then we have been by each others side. For the last three and a half years we have been inseparable and I couldn’t imagine life without him.

I am an event planner and travel a lot for work. I had just landed back in America, from a long business trip in India. I was completely exhausted but Craig insisted we went on a date to welcome me home. Our reservation was for 8:15 p.m. (that’s what he told me), so I had a good amount of time to get ready. As I was doing my make up Craig sat next team to me to talk about my trip and I began to think he was acting a little our of character. He was getting up a lot and I could tell he seemed a little nervous. After a while he went downstairs, as I was almost finished I called down to see what he was doing, he responded with “just sitting here!”. I got to the bottom of the stairs and I saw a bouquet of roses on the table and as I turned the corner our entire living room was covered with white and red rose petals and tons of candles. Craig was standing there with four signs behind him that said “Will You Marry Me?”. I immediately stopped and was in complete shock. Craig called me over and got down on one knee, he said “Rebecca Foster I love you more than anything and want to spend the rest of my life with you.” I instantly started tearing up and did not want to let go from hugging him. He opened the ring box and I was in awe. It was my dream ring and I could not believe in that moment my best friend was my fiancé and my soon to be husband!
