India and Jacob

How We Met

We met at a youth group when we were both 16 years old. I first spoke to him when I offered him a gobstopper. We became close friends and then 3 months later he asked me to be his girlfriend!

How He Asked

On our last day in Paris, Jacob, myself and Trina (old youth leader) caught up for breakfast and coffee. After getting lost trying to find her, we eventually got to a cute little coffee shop, ordered coffee and headed to a bakery to get some delicious pastries.After getting our food, we decided to sit by the Eiffel Tower to eat and people watch. When we finished our food, Trina suggested going to a place where we could get some typical touristy photos with the whole Eiffel Tower in it. So off we went across a bridge and went up to a building to get these photos. Jacob gave his phone to Trina to take some photos on.. Trina then got her camera out so she could take a few photos for her scrapbook. All the while, I had absolutely no idea what was about to happen. Once Trina had her camera out, Jacob turned to me and told me how much he loved and how he knew from the moment he met me that there was something special about me that wasn’t just my sweet tooth, but somewhere he wanted to be with for the rest of his life. His hand then reached into his pocket as he bent down on one knee and said the four words I had been wanting to hear for a while!

After much excitement, hugs and kissing, I said yes! So, my dream since I was a little girl came true! I got proposed to in front of the Eiffel Tower at 21 years old!
