Tabitha and Mattias

How We Met

I was signed to play professional soccer in Sweden. I came over right after finishing college at Clemson University. A girl who plays for my team has a BF who is best friend with Mattias. She invited us both to a summer celebration. I had a BF at the time so I knew Mattias was the good looking swede I had ever seen. We hit it off from the first time we met. I went home and a week later broke it off with my boyfriend because I knew Mattias was the one and we have been dating ever since. I

How He Asked

He woke me up a told me I needed to pack a bag for a night. He drove us to the train station where we boarded a train that headed for the airport. Once we got to the airport we got our tickets and then I saw we were going to Paris! Once we landed in Paris we had a car service waiting to take is to our hotel. Once we got into the hotel there were rose petals everywhere. Champagne and macaroons and a perinatal message from the hotel saying they were at our disposal. We explored around town a then Then he told me it was time for me to go get ready. There was a dress laying on the bed that I was suppose to wear for the evening. Once I was done getting ready the telephone rang and told me a driver was waiting for me downstairs. When I came downstairs there mattias was with my favorite flower in hand waiting for me. We drove to a restaurant that had the beat view of the Eiffel Tower at night. We walked in they welcome us and told us our table was ready. Mattias had already hand picked the 7 course dinner menu with champagne and wine for each course. We talked and laughed and ate for 3 hours until almost midnight. He told me he wanted to walk under the Eiffel Tower and since it was so close I agreed that would be nice. He planned it perfectly, because every hour on the hour the Eiffel Towers lights twinkle for a couple minutes and it is the most spectacular thing I’ve ever seen, so as we get underneath it he tells me to take my jacket off for a picture so I turn to place my jacket on the ground and turn around and he is on one knee just as the lights started twinkling. It was a fairytale.
