Mia and Phillip
How We Met
Phillip and I met through my older brother, as they are friends from their school days. We have technically known each other for more than 15 years, but we only started to see each other frequently from 2010 on wards. I always thought Phillip was such a gentleman (and very good looking!) and I enjoyed our conversations whenever we saw each other. We started to hang out in 2011 and Phillip asked me out on a date in late December 2011. A few days later, on New Years Eve, Phillip asked me to be his girlfriend. We have loved each other ever since.
How He Asked
Phillip and I planned a week-long getaway in October 2016. I couldn’t decide where I wanted to go, so Phillip said he would plan the week. We spent our fist night in the beautiful Blue Mountains in New South Wales, Australia. Phillip told me we were going to visit different places throughout the week. The next day, without telling me where we were going, Phillip drove me to the exclusive and heavenly Wolgan Valley.
I thought we were going to only stay for one night, but we stayed for many days! On our second day at Wolgan Valley, we went for a bike ride throughout the beautiful valley. After, our driver at the resort picked us up and drove us to a remote mountain. He set up a picnic for us and said he would collect us later in the afternoon. Phillip and I started taking photos of each other and some selfies! Phillip placed his phone on the ground so he could capture a photo of both of us with the picturesque valley in the background. Little did I know, he had turned on the video and filmed his proposal!
He bent down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Through many many happy tears, I said YES!! I will never forget that moment. It was unexpected and that made it all the more special. We enjoyed a champagne picnic, although I was too excited to eat anything, and we were driven back to the homestead where we were greeted with more champagne. So far, this was certainly the best day of our lives.
