Candice and Carl
How We Met
Carl and I first met in high school. He was super quiet. I saw an empty seat by him and went over to sit there. Slowly talking each day we found out we both like Dogs and the band Skillet. He claims he has always had the biggest crush on me but never thought he was good enough for me. Which he is. More than enough.
Fast forward 5 years. He reached out to me on Facebook messenger, asking if I would like to go on a date with him. He was on leave for 2 weeks. He is a marine, stationed in Hawaii. I was hesitant. But all the worriedness went away the minute he came up to my door. That was the start of our beautiful relationship.
How He Asked
I went out to Oahu for 2 weeks where Carl is stationed at. On December 10th, 2017, we anxiously arrived at SkyDive Hawaii. After signing our life away Lol they put on all of our safety gear. I paid for the video and Carl paid for photos. So before we walked on the small claustrophobic plane. They had us wave to the camera and asked us how we are feeling. Both excited and nervous. We went on to the plane and it seemed like forever until we got to the right altitude.
The experienced jumpers would open the door and all you see is crystal blue water. Carl jumped out first and I just watch him fall into the clouds. Then it was my turn. The air was freezing but it’s the most beautiful experience. I was the last to land and my landing was very smooth. My jumper with me took everything off me quickly and I turned around and Carl was on one knee asking to marry me. I was full of emotions and of course, I said yes! In the background, I can hear so many people cheering. It was the best day of my life.
