Jessalyn and Carlos
Carlos and I met when we were about 12 years old. We were acquaintances until we ended up at the same University a few years later and the connection was pretty much instant. We dated for about two years but ended up parting ways when I was going into my last year of school. We were apart for almost 5 years and ending up dating other people. Those relationships didn’t work out and we found our way back to each other about here years ago at Christmas time and have been inseparable ever since. He is from Ecuador and his family is still there, along with his dad who lives in the Galápagos Islands. This year while visiting them, we took a cruise through the Galápagos Islands, and on the third day of the cruise we stopped at an island that was at the top of my bucket list. To my surprise Carlos has been traveling around an engagement ring throughout the first half of our trip and he got down on one knee in the most beautiful part of the whole island! The answer was obviously yes! It could not have been more perfect and to be able to celebrate with his family after was the cherry on top!
