Jaime and Adrian
How He Asked
Last December, we took a bucket list trip to Fairbanks, Alaska to celebrate our five year anniversary and (hopefully) catch a glimpse of the magical Aurora Borealis.
Our second night there, we bundled up and headed out into the snow covered field in front of our cabin. Once standing in the middle of the field in seventeen below zero, the sky was its normal, star-dotted blue, so Adrian put on some Frank Sinatra and began spinning and dancing me around for a few songs. The auroras began to peak over the forest silhouette right as “Just the Way you Look Tonight” started. We were in complete awe, as the universe began to illuminate with hues of bright, dancing green curtains. In the same moment of seeing such magic, Adrian dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him.
From then on, our engagement has been touched with the same magic of that night, and I have been walking on clouds ever since.
