How We Met

Borja and I first met when we attended college together! He was a foreign exchange student and had become friends with some of my close friends from high school. The universe finally brought us together and we were inseparable since, minus the fact that he lives in Spain. We have been together for almost four years and have had a long distance relationship for almost half that time! Proving that nothing can break the love we share for one another.

How He Asked

Borja and I were traveling all around Europe. Our first stop was Venice and little did I know I would be getting a magnificent surprise. On our second day in Venice he surprised me with a gondola ride. It was beautiful and by far the best way to get the full experience of Venice. As we lingered down a more quiet section of the canal he grabbed my hands, stood up pulling me along with him and then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was like a dream!

As we rode along the canal I could hear people on the bridge screaming and saying “that’s soooo romantic!” and it was!

I will never forget this moment.
