Rachel and Patrick

Patrick and I have been dating seven years since high school. Our friends always knew we’d marry but time had never been on our side. On Friday night my friends told me we were going out dancing. As we got into a uber they told me they were lying and handed me an envelope with my first clue. The clue stated that I had a gift card for Macy’s to go buy a dress ‘fit for a princess’. After obtaining my first clue my friends and I searched for the next clues all over. Each clue included a location that was sentimental to Patrick and I. Finally, my last clue led me out to the water tower where he was waiting on one knee. Tears spilled from my eyes from bliss and the only thing I could choke out was “yes”. As the first snow began to fall I accepted my ring. Afterwards, he took us to the restaurant we went to for our first anniversary. The waitress there had a book waiting for me. It was my very own fairytale storybook with pictures dating back to our high school years along with letters. The final page of our book was filled with pictures of our engagement ending the night with they lived happily ever after.
