Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always been into fairy tales and happily ever afters. My grandmother, who was a teacher, would read me fairy tales before bedtime. And so I grew up believing that one day, my Prince would come. Now, he finally has. I’m engaged!
Last February 10 my boyfriend proposed to me. I’ve always been wanted romance and flair, and that night I got it. After my brothers wedding in Chateau de Busay, my boyfriend, in front of my family and close friends, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. The setting was perfect. Aside from the romantic venue with the great view, what made it so memorable to me was the presence of my family – some of who are based abroad and other parts of the Philippines. My business partners, Stef and Mitch, also flew all the way from CDO to be part of the proposal. They’re the best partners ever. What made it even more surprising was that I totally had no idea Jong was going to propose that night. I’m usually very intuitive when it comes to these things, but I guess I got so distracted by the wedding I didn’t see it coming.
Ours was a love story that didn’t happen in an instant. In fact, Jong had to wait for almost a year before he could formally court me. But I guess the best things in life can’t be rushed. Now, I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this amazing guy that taught me how to be to love selflessly. We are total opposites and yet we have the same mindset in many things. We both love to learn and we challenge each other to grow in the different key areas of life. He is not only a man I can love, but he’s also someone I can follow.
To all the girls out there who are still waiting for their Prince Charming, don’t give up. Someday, he’ll come and you’ll have your fairy tale moment when he gets down on one knee and asks for your hand in marriage. In the meantime, work on being Ms. Right. Put your relationship with God first because when He is first, everything falls into place.
