Proposal Idea: Falling For The Chef

Mitch and I met in our final year at culinary school. We struck up a conversation one day after class and which ended with him asking me to dinner.  I reluctantly agreed and it was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Our relationship just ” felt right” from the moment it started and we knew that we were meant to be with each other.  As I tell my friends, “When you know, you know”. We had been dating for a little over a year when we decided to move into together and making plans for our future.

One afternoon we were getting ready for a family BBQ and Mitch asked me to run upstairs and grab his “BBQ shoes” – and yes, he has BBQ shoes.  As I headed down the stairs, BBQ shoes in hand, Mitch kneeling on one knee at the bottom of the stairs and holding an open ring box.  I was so surprised by the moment that I actually fell down the last few steps, landing on Mitch.  As we laughed, he asked “I guess that’s a yes?”

It’s been over 10 years since that day and we still laugh about that story.  Not only did it change our lives forever but it still makes us a little windy when we recall that day.  I literally fell for my chef…and I continue to fall in love with him more every day.
