My Proposal On Valentines Day

Hi sweeties,

As I promised you, here is my beautiful proposal in Paris. Hope you like it and enjoy it as much as I did.

So all began in May 2002, I met my husband to be, trough a Portuguese chat website. We just randomly started talking and talking for hours on the computer. Then we exchanged numbers, it was hard to establish some sort of friendships, because I was in UK and he was in Portugal. But we managed some how. First time we talked on the phone lasted 3 hours, I remember like it was yesterday. So that year me and my family went to Portugal in August for holiday to visit the rest of my family. First thing I did when we arrived to Portugal was calling Ricardo, that's his name. So even in Portugal we are from different places, 4 hours apart. I'm from Lisbon, and he's from North Porto. 

So anyways, I phoned him and that weekend he drove 4 hours just to meet me in person. This was on the 25th August. Even before we met in person, we knew we had something special. We were always texting, and talking on the phone and even exchanged pictures of each other, so I already knew how he looked like. 

So the very first time we met face to face, was magical to me. I was so in love with him already, we felt like we've known each other for such a long time. We had lunch with my family, and after that, we went for a walk. It was the most funny walk I've ever had in my life. All we did was how much we liked each other, I told him how cute he was, he said the same thing to me etc.

Felt like a dream. So on that day 25th August 2002 he asked me to be his girlfriend, and of course I said yes.

After my holidays, I had to come back to England and he stayed in Portugal, was really hard for us, but we managed through texting, phone calls and visiting each other. But there was a time we decided that I either go to Portugal or he would come to England. And he did came to England. Was the happiest day of my life.

In 2007, I became pregnant the most memorable moment in our lives. Our first baby, the first baby in the family, we were thrilled, my mom was hysterical with the news, she couldn't believe it I was pregnant, the next day everyone in Portugal knew I was pregnant. 2008, we had a baby boy, the most loving and helpful boy there is, he loves to help people, even his teachers says the same thing. Before having my boy, we moved to our apartment near my parents, so if anything happened they were just 5 minutes away from our house.

In 2012, we decided it was time to try for baby number two, hoping it was a girl, because we already had a boy. But what we really wanted was a baby for Christmas, and like the doctors said to me once, I am very fertile, so every time I want a baby it will work for me straight away. I felt so blessed knowing that. So a Christmas baby we had, on the 8th December 2013 my second boy was born. We were over the moon, even though he was not a girl, we didn't really care, he was healthy, that what matters to us. He's very sweet, very caring, we are so blessed to have them in our lives.

After having my sons, I felt like something was missing, a proposal! I've waited and waited. But my husband to be, always told me that day would be here sooner than later, and it would be memorable, special and romantic.

In 2016, on Valentine's Day we didn't do anything, because we had my nieces birthday party, and obviously we couldn't miss it. But I knew there was something going on, because Ricardo and my mum was always talking to each other behind my back. And finally he told me he had a surprise planned for us, the weekend after Valentines Day, the 21th.

So I waited and waited, I was so excited and nervous at the same time, because I knew we were spending the weekend somewhere and I had to leave our boys for the first time with my parents. The day arrived, I was so excited. So we dropped the kids at my parents house and we headed to the train station. All I knew was, that we were going to London.

So when we arrived to St Pancras, we went for breakfast together. I saw Ricardo taking his Go Pro from his bag and start filming after we had breakfast, Then he gave me some train tickets and my passport, and he said to me "Open it, and you will found out where we are actually going", when I opened it I couldn't talk, I just freeze for a moment and cried my eyes out, I couldn't believe he brought us tickets to spend a romantic weekend in Paris. He has my reaction filmed, and what was more surprising was that when I looked at him, he was crying too. The sweetest moment ever.

When we arrived to Paris Gar Du Nord, we headed to the Eiffel Tower, we took amazing pictures there, at night it's just so dreamy, the tower just illuminates itself, it's just stunning. So we found a Portuguese restaurant, had such a nice dinner together, so romantic. Afterwards, we went to the hotel. The most beautiful hotel I have ever seen. It was just 10 minutes away from the tower.
The next day, we woke up really early, he told me to get ready, so I did. Afterwards I just saw a camera pointing to the bed, a beautiful red rose on the bed and a card. Took the card and read it, he filmed everything. I have never read such beautiful words in my life. 

So after, we headed to the tower. We had a photo shoot, I had no idea those photos was actually my engagement pictures, so anyways, at 10 am we went to the tower, had an nice breakfast there, and we headed up, right to the very top of the tower. It was the most frightened day of my life. It was so cold and so windy.
So Ricardo took more pictures of us and filmed, then he found a spot which he said to me "go there and don't let anyone take that spot", I was just standing there freezing cold. So all I saw was a camera and a Go Pro next to me, I had no idea what he was going to do.

So then, when he finished setting up everything, he stand in front of me, kissed me, and spoke the most amazing words, i have ever heard from him, then he stood on his knees and took a beautiful box out of his pocket, I knew what he was going to do, I cried and cried and couldn't believe it. All I know, everyone made a circle around us, they filmed and took pictures, which I have no idea where those pictures ended up.. After the proposal, everyone was clapping and whistling, wishing us good luck. We felt so glamorous and so important that day. Everyone knew us basically.

At lunch time, we went home, my parents were the only ones who knew everything, they were so happy for us. So now we are just planning our wedding. It's going to be in Portugal, we have amazing ideas, we want everything to be glamorous, elegant and special. We waited so long, that we don't really care how much it's going to cost, all we want is to have everything we've always dreamed of, be happy, and we wish that everyone will be having a good time too.

So this is a brief story of how I met my future husband, afterwards and the proposal, Hope you enjoyed it, as much as I did. Thank you so much for taking time and reading my story!
