Grace and Cleo
How We Met
We met at a mutual friends surprise birthday party. We started talking to one another and long story short somehow I (Grace) started talking about my birthday being 12/12 and Cleo said his address was 1212. Because I didn’t believe him I needed proof so he showed me his id and his address was: 1212 Grace Hill St. Yep, my birthday and name… what are the chances of that happening.
How He Asked
It was a chilly Tuesday evening. I picked him up from the metro and he offered to go out to dinner because he could tell I wasn’t in the best of moods. We park at the restaurant I (Grace) get out of the car and start walking towards the restaurant he walks past me and the restaurant and says he wants to look out at the water in Old Town Alexandria.
It’s dark, cold and windy and I’m ready to eat, at that moment he turns and faces me and gets down on one knee.
