REAL PROPOSAL STORY OF Abby AND Carina
The COVID hit the east coast and everything was chaos. We were afraid to be trapped in our tiny apartment dealing with a pandemic, so I called my family and said we were going to move back to the Midwest immediately. Little did I know, my fiancé Carina was waiting for the ring to arrive downtown and a couple days before our move, the city shut down and my ring was trapped in a closed showroom.
We left Boston without it and without me knowing the stress she was under trying to keep her ruined plans a secret from me. After two days straight of driving in fear, we got to my parents’ house completely exhausted. We spent about a month there – Carina making secret calls begging for someone to find and send her the ring.
Luckily, it came after two months of waiting. She took me on a picnic at a park I grew up going to and could barely get the question out through tears. I sobbed back knowing her perfect proposal had been ruined. I told her in my eyes, it was everything I’ve ever dreamt of. A personal, special moment we shared in the midst of a dark and uncertain time.
