Magic in The Kingdom

Aaron and I had been dating since high school, and I was starting to get antsy about him eventually proposing. I had been subtly dropping hints- strategically leaving a bridal magazine at his place, mentioning the engagements of mutual friends. I was starting to make myself crazy, so I resigned myself to putting it out of my mind as best as I could. For my 25th birthday, Aaron and I booked a trip to Disneyworld- A place I hadn’t visited since my childhood. It was always a dream of mine to return to Disney as an adult so that I could really appreciate it.

On our second day at the park, Aaron asked a stranger to take a picture of us in front of the castle at the Magic Kingdom. As the stranger set up to take our photo, Aaron dropped to his knee and presented me with a beautiful emerald cut engagement ring! I was in total shock! The stranger snapped the photo and I started jumping up and down and screaming. The crowd that had started to gather was yelling “answer him!” I was so happy and excited I forgot to answer! I gave Aaron a resounding YES and the crowd applauded as we hugged.
I will never forget the way my now fiancée proposed. It was totally worth the wait!
