The Proposal – His version:
“After conspiring for months with my sister and co-workers, I picked out the ideal engagement ring just in time for our trip to Hawaii that we had been planning for months. I had planned to propose after we hiked the Diamond Head crater, a hike planned for the day after Valentine’s Day. The morning of Valentine’s Day though, our plans changed and we made the hike that day. She noticed I was nervous the whole day but did not know why. We made friends with a local on the way up the hike, and when I asked him to take a photo of us I got down on one knee and said “Do you remember how I asked you to go with me to the prom 7 years ago? Well I have another important question to ask you…”-Dayo
The Proposal – Her version:
“We flew to Hawaii the day before V-day and were beyond excited to spend V-day in paradise. The following day which was valentine’s day we went parasailing, beach hopped and went to get some local Hawaiian food. I did notice while walking around that Dayo seemed a bit spacey, I asked him if everything was alright; he blamed the sun giving him a headache. We headed back to the apartment and washed up. We then decided to hike up Diamond Head which we initially planned to do the day after. I figured it made sense because the day was almost over and a smooth hike would be the icing on the cake. The view on top of the crater was majestic. I was still enjoying the view and once I turned my head towards him, I noticed he was on one knee. At first, I thought he was joking because he completely caught me off guard. Then when he open the box and I saw sparkles, my legs began to tremble, I couldn’t speak, my eyes were teary…but I screamed yes more than once haha I like to be precise I guess. I didn’t sleep that night. I stared at my hand the whole night with a big smile on my face. He kept waking up every 5 minutes to tell me to go to sleep. It was the best day of my life, our lives.
