A magical Disney proposal
A trip to Paris makes most girls swoon a little with their hearts already considering the possibilities of where it may happen. My experience wasn’t much different considering my Fiance asked my parents for their blessing mere weeks ago.
We were going to Disneyland Paris amidst the 25th anniversary celebrations in the park and for the Run Disney France weekend which was a 5k on the Friday, followed by a 10k on Saturday and a half on the Sunday.
I even sorted our costumes but it was the second day where I was dressed as Snow White that things got interesting. I dressed him as the prince from that movie. We were to get a shuttle to the parks but he sent me down to wait for it* and it got the point where I worried that he was going to miss the bus. Thankfully he appeared.
We were running the 10k together and it went through both Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland Park too. We were running at a nice pace where we could chat and admire our surroundings yet still cover lots of ground.
Then we were running through Sleeping Beauty’s castle when he said to stop for a picture ; this was not out of the ordinary because RunDisney races aren’t too serious with lots of photo opportunities.
When I stopped outside the front of the castle, he pulled me close and got really emotional telling me how much he loved me and got on his knee with the ringbox. How had I not noticed it in his short pockets? He asked to marry him – cue lots of other runners saying ‘he’s proposing!’
I said YES and we even somehow managed to get on French tv. http://m.rtl.be/videos/642643
It still feels quite surreal and like a fairy tale almost a week later.
*turns out that his dithering and slowness in the hotel room was so he could practice his speech and try on the ring.<!–Clip_XXXX_170928_162127_830–>

So happy to see your name attached to this thread- you’re one of the waiting bees I’ve been hoping for a happy update from 🙂
You and your FIANCE (yay) look adorable and your ring and nails are lovely. That run looks like so much fun- though I don’t know how you guys did all of them even if you’re younger than me! lol I think I’d do the 5k and spend the next day poolside recooperating.
Congratulations! Happy wedding planning 🙂

So exciting! I bet the emotions were flowing having just completed a race and THEN saying yes to the love of your life! Also Disney engagements are the best….my Fiance proposed at Epcot in “Italy” and it was so magical. I know a lot of people think they’re cheesy but I definitely disagree 😉 Congrats!
