Sandra offered Isac money, but he kindly declined, instead they went to a Japanese restaurant for dinner. After that night they both started to talk, hangout, and text each other more. Then a few months later they started dating. Now seven years later they are getting ready to live happily ever after. Their story began fall 2009 at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM).

How He Asked

The day and weather was perfect in San Marcos, just right for an afternoon hike at Discovery Lake. The lake itself sits in the center of various paved and dirt trails, with a steep incline to reach the summit, rewarding hikers with panoramic views of emerald brush and the city of San Marcos. Sandra and Isac had gone before various times and spontaneously decided to go again. Today, their goal was to reach the summit of the steep hill.

They ascended, taking periodic breaks for the views and to drink water, until finally reaching the top. They played a game at the top, pointing out buildings, helping each other identify where they had been, until the ring came out and around Sandra’s body to her line of sight. Choking back tears of surprise and joy, she said yes.
