"Today I marry my best friend — the one I dream of and love."
We met online in July 2014. I have never gone to meet someone I had just met online but i had a good feeling about Andrey and we decided to go out for coffee a few days later on July 6th.
Both of us assumed we'd meet for about an hour or so but we ended up talking and walking around for a good 6 hours. After that we would hang out almost every weekend doing various activities like hiking, kayaking, biking and just walking around the city.
A few months before our vacation in Bali, Andrey and I had come up with a plan to keep me on track of my fitness goal of exercising daily for 12 weeks. My incentive would be getting a small present at the end of 3 months (I kept on asking for a box of chocolates because I have a massive sweet tooth).On December 22, the end of the 3 months, as we were lounging around the pool bar, Andrey asked me if I wanted my present now but I said maybe we should wait until dinner time especially since he mentioned that he wanted to film my reaction to it. After all, I wasn't excited about being filmed in a bathing suit and with no makeup on. But he reassured me that I looked great.At this point, I was obviously clued in to the face that I wasn't getting a box of chocolates but rather something bigger.
I toyed around with the idea that maybe he wanted to propose, but I wouldn't let myself entertain that idea for too long.
After Andrey set up the camera in the shallow end of the pool, he began to give me these "certificates" that he made where he was promising me chocolates and flowers and more. Then came an envelope which Andrey explained was my actual present that hadn’t arrived in time. As I opened it, I was super surprised and shocked to find a picture of a ring! He got down on one knee and asked me if I would be his wife. Lots of happy tears followed after that!
