It was New Year’s Eve night, our town threw a big masquerade ball so we got all dressed up and went with a few of our friends. Before we went we had a Lovely dinner at one of our small town diners then off to the ball we went. As you walked in to hand your entrance ticket there were slips to fill out a New Years resolution, after done you’d fold it up and put it in a box for a few to be picked a read a few minutes before midnight.

The beautiful night continued and it felt like we danced the night away well when I actually got to dance with my boyfriend he was pretty nervous I just took it as he was nervous because he doesn’t like big crowds. It came time for the drawings of the New Years resolution slips to be read. His hand got pulled and called up the stage, he started dragging me with him and I didn’t understand why I just thought maybe he didn’t want all the attention on him; suddenly our song perfect by Ed Sheeran starts playing and I thought it was kind of odd but went with it. The announcer who happens to be my mom read his slip which said: “my New Years resolution is to spend the rest of my life with my best friend.” While looking at my mom when speaking I looked over and he was down on one knee with a little back box in his hand smiling nervously and then asked if I’d married him. I lost all words and just started crying.

It was the best way to purpose, it truly made a girl feel special.
