an olive proposal | caiti + pascal
Pascal and I are each other's person but we didn't realize it until 2020. We first met and became casual friends at a local Orlando coffee shop in 2013, but we didn't find each other until after we coincidentally reconnected in 2020. We then fell in love after a few months quite unexpectedly. So far, we share 1 hand-me-down duplex apartment, 1 cat, and identical love languages, we have spent 2 Christmases, Thanksgivings, and 4th of Julys, 4 birthdays, 16 domestic getaways, 2 international getaways together, and only 6 nights apart. On March 11th, 2022, he proposed and I said, "obviously!"
His original plan was to propose after I landed from a skydiving experience, but since he's not the best secret keeper, he accidentally let this plan slip (although, this was just confirmation of what I had already figured out months prior lol). In order to keep the proposal a surprise because he knows I'm also very good at figuring things out, he completely changed his plan. Instead, he ended up proposing in the parking lot of Kadence, this incredible sushi restaurant, after dinner! Agreeing to marry him was the easiest decision I've ever made, which speaks volumes because I am typically very indecisive. His proposal was the most awkward, adorable, genuine, sweet and happiest moment of my life so far and I can't wait for the rest of our future together!
