How did your love story begin?


We met 2012 in High school. Since then we knew. In 2014 he joked around and told me that he's going to marry me one day. We where always close friends, in 2018 we decided that we want to be together. He proposed on the 31st of December 2020. He's my dream come true❤️ and the beginning of a fairy tale that I never knew I wanted.

Tell us all about the proposal.


He proposed on new year on 12:00pm just when I wanted to kiss him he went on his knees and told me that he never wants to be without me and that he wants to grow old with me, I started to cry out of excitement. It was a plot twist, because we always joked arround, I said I'm going to kick him one day when he goes down on one knee just for the joke of it, and that he has to be the one crying to show me how much I mean to him then I was the one crying.
