Hello Beautiful People! It's the final countdown of our 2011 "How'd Ya Get Hitched?" contest! If you're still thinking about entering, you have until midnight PST Sunday, May 15th to send me your entry, so keep 'em coming. Here's the latest engagement story of Lisa and Derrick, illustrated by my mystical and magical rainbow unicorn bride and groom.
I have known my Fiance, Derrick, since the summer of 2003 when he started skydiving at the same drop zone I jump at. Since we both spend all our weekends out there, and it's more of a lifestyle than a hobby, we got to know each other pretty well over the years. We have been a couple for three years now, and although I knew the question was near, I didn't realize how much so when he surprised me the morning of December 31, 2010. We live in the upper apartment of a duplex, and I was bringing home some laundry I had just done. As I opened the door, I could see that our stairs were lined on each side all the way up with lit tea lights, and there were notes in the middle of each stair that summarized the story of his life, meeting and falling in love with me. The last five stairs had one word each: "Lisa...Will...You...Marry...Me?" And there he was sitting at the top holding the ring! Even though we first fell in love under "extreme" circumstances, this special, surprise, intimate moment he had created for me will be something I remember and cherish forever.
Now we're up to six entries, with two winners--very good odds to win a free custom cake topper! If you're still waiting to enter, send your story in before it's too late! Click here for full details of this year's contest.
