Summer and Camden
How We Met
We’ve known each other our entire lives! He was best friends with my older sister and would always be at my house growing up. It wasn’t until my freshman year of high school (his sophomore year) that we started to like each other. One night, he, my sister, and another one of their friends were driving around when it was mentioned that Camden liked me. My sister freaked out! She DID NOT want her best friend to date her little sister! A few weeks later he asked me to the Homecoming Dance, and I said yes! After the dance he took me home and we had our first kiss and we’ve been together ever since.
How He Asked
My family had planned a trip to Disneyland (my favorite place!) Camden and I would go every summer, but since he is stationed in Japan, he wouldn’t be able to make this trip. This was a really busy summer for me, I was working full time and then had an internship in a town four hours away. With my schedule being so full, I DID NOT want to go to Disneyland this year. My family kept pressuring me to go, since it would be our last trip together with me graduating college this year. After a few weeks, they finally convinced me to go.
The day we were going to the park, we got in and waited a little while for the rest of the family to show (I always make sure to be there as soon as the park opens which is a little too early for some). After what seemed like forever, we received a call from my dad letting us know that they had finally gotten there and were waiting by the castle. We start to walk that way and once we rounded a corner I notice that a lot of people were staring at me. Confused, I kept walking and asked my older sister why everyone was looking at me, as soon as I was facing the front of the castle I found out why.
Kneeling right in the middle was my amazing boyfriend (now fiancé) in his dressed in his dress blues with members of both of our families standing behind him holding glittering letters that spelled “MARRY ME.” He had flown all the way for Japan to propose to me! I walked up to him saying yes the whole way!
Apparently everyone had known about this for months! He also bought some cute Disney shirts that say “LOVE” to take pictures in. He even hired an amazing photographer and a fantastic videographer to document one of the greatest days of my life! I can’t wait to spend my forever with my best friend and love of my life.
