Jesse and Darren

How he Asked

We were in Italy on vacation with my family when Darren proposed. Darren and I had spent the day touring around Rome and before we headed back to the apartment to meet my family for dinner, Darren suggested we stop by a beautiful vista point in the neighborhood.

From the overlook, we could see much of old Rome off to one side and off the other side, the Vatican. As we were getting ready to leave, Darren suggested we ask someone to take a photo of us.

It took us some time to find someone to take a photo but eventually, we did and as we were getting ready to pose for the photo, Darren completely surprised me by getting down on one knee, pulling a ring out of his pocket and asking me to marry him.

I was so excited that I just kept saying “oh my gosh!” over and over again. He eventually had to remind me to answer the question (of course my answer was yes!) and he slipped the ring on my finger. After letting this exciting, happy moment sink in a bit more, we went back to the apartment to share our news and celebrate with my family!
