How We Met

James and I met back in 2013 via a dating website. James lived 1.5hours drive away on a 10,000 acre sheep farm. I remember the 1st day we meet in person I was so nervous and felt like an excited school girl as I peeped through the curtains as he pulled up to my house. On our 1st date we went to a quant little cafe and bonded over croissants and Coffee like we had known each other for years. We would finish each other’s sentences and spend hours laughing. This is where James discovered my dream to one day visit Paris.

How He Asked

In November 2014 James planned a trip to Paris to celebrate his 28th birthday. It was a rainy yet beautiful day in Paris we had already spent 4 days exploring the beautiful city doing all the touristy things like the louvre, Norte dame, the Eiffel Tower. We decided we would just spend the day roaming around the city. As night time fell we headed to a little restaurant not far from the Eiffel Tower. After our meals James suggested we just go for a walk. As we wondered through the park heading back towards the Eiffel Tower James stopped and got down on one knee as precisely 8pm as the Eiffel Tower begun to sparkle James produced a sparkling diamond ring and asked me to become his wife.
