MY WEDDING PROPOSAL STORY

A lot of people do not know how JM and I met. Nine years ago, we met through a common friend on the social media site Multiply. JM had a Nokia 5310 cellphone back then, and I left a comment asking how it was as a phone. After a few months of being acquaintances, he asked if he can drive me home and it was a constant answer of no from me.

After a few more tries, I thought why not give him a chance, as he sounds friendly naman. 

We became friends for a few more months and had friendly dates from time to time. Then we hit a bump along the friendship road and decided to part ways. During this time that we were apart, we realized that we liked each other. 

So we got back together and as cliché as it was, the rest was history.


JM and I had talked about marriage a few years back but we knew we were not yet ready until we had a place of our own. So after the construction of our home, we knew that the next step was to get married. I was already doing research about weddings but nothing was concrete since JM had not formally asked me to marry him yet! 


On August 15, 2015, a week before my birthday and our house blessing, JM asked me to check out our master's bedroom. I was surprised that there was a bouquet of flowers in the bed. By this time, I was already expecting him to propose! I was so in the moment! 

Naiiyak na ako sa tuwa! 

When I turned around, he handed me a huge paper bag! Imagine my disappointment when I opened the paper bag and saw Judy Ann’s cookbook (which I loved by the way) as his birthday gift!!!! 

I did not show him how disappointed I was and said my thank you. 

Then he said, “Basahin mo naman yung card.” 

So when I read the card it said, “Hope you liked my second gift”

My legs were already turning into jelly and when I turned around, there he was, half-kneeling and asking me to marry him. 

My hair was a mess, I hadn’t showered yet, I was very sleepy since I just arrived that morning from Singapore, but my heart was so full. I was extremely happy. There he was, my best friend, asking me to marry him. Of course I said YES.
