I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years. We first met at what was my summer job and his regular job. We spent 3 years 2 hrs. away while I went to school and he worked at home. Edwin is originally from Puerto Rico and we have been wanting to go there, but never had the money to do it.
Finally, this year I told him were going no matter what. He was all for it, but as summer came closer he started to say that he didn’t think he could afford it. I just wouldn’t listen. If we weren’t going now, we were never going to have the money, so we got the plane tickets.
July 17th was the day we left for PR. I was very scared because it was my first time flying. Once we got there, I felt very out of place because I can not speak spanish nor do I completely understand it. Edwin helped me out the whole time we were there, while I grew closer to him.
One of the places we wanted to go see was a place called “La Crusetta” This place is up high in the city and over looks the city Ponce. There is a big cross you can climb up and a big beautiful castle to tour. Unfortunately when we got there both places were closed, but the view was breath taking. I was not expecting what was about to come. Edwins little brother ran away.
As I was questioning this, Edwin turned me toward him and got down on one knee. I knew what was coming, I have been waiting for it for so long. I immediately started to cry, and that is when he proposed.
It was the perfect place for the perfect proposal. I then knew why he couldn’t really afford to go to Puerto Rico, but he always finds a way to make me happy!
