how we met

I had just finished work for the morning and was heading towards my desk when I saw her. It was her first day at work and she had just completed her orientation with the HR department. Our supervisor’s PA introduced me to her. After lunch, I showed her around and got her stationery and equipment to help her settle in more quickly. We worked more closely together over the next couple of weeks as I taught her techniques and skillsets she needed to get started on her project. We got to know each other more, started hanging out after work, and the rest was the pretty standard fanfare.

how he asked

It was my birthday and our 6th anniversary. He told me we were going to a Swedish cottage restaurant at Central Park for dinner. We walked there and he said we would be too early, so we strolled around the park slowly. When we reached the Bow Bridge, he told me he needed to go to the restroom. I asked if he could do so when we reached the restaurant, but he said it was still far away, on the other side of the park and further up. So he left me at the bridge and went off. I was being left on the bridge alone without my phone and feeling lost (!!).

Then from a distance, I saw him on a boat, coming towards me. Some people beside me started singing, and he showed me big cards with really nice and sweet messages on them. I melted. On the last card, he asked the question, to which I smiled gleefully and nodded.

He then docked on the side of the lake, got off, proposed, and put the ring on me. My first thought earlier was I wanted to be on that boat with him. True enough, he brought me onto the boat, and we rowed to the boathouse together for a nice dinner. It was the most unforgettable moment of my life.
