Hayfa and Alaa

How We Met

We met in college. He took most of his classes with me when I had no idea that he liked me. We became best friends over time and realized that we were born on the exact same day. The connection grew with time, he had to travel abroad for work,  and 4 years later of long distance phone calls and texting he decided to pop the question.

How He Asked

He took me to the beach where he had prepared a beautiful romantic setting facing the beach. We had lunch and then told me to walk before the sunset. As we were walking his hands were shaking he went down on one knee and from there I wasn’t aware of the words because I was shocked seeing him on one knee.
