How did you meet? Tell us your story.
You know the feeling you get when everything is just right? That’s what it was like when I saw Martin from across the lecture room at university nine years ago.
There he was, this gorgeous man who made me all giggly and week at the knees. That same night I asked him out and we just had the best time. After a week we had a second date and he took me to the movies and after that invited me home for tea and homemade bread. A guy who could bake, cook and was insanely fun to hang out with, not to mention SO handsome! On top of that he had fresh herbs in his kitchen and I had to admit I was smitten!
Describe the proposal.
It was one of the warmest nights of the entire summer and I could hear Martin banging on something in the kitchen. He had set the table on the patio and put on our song, “Lucky by Jason Mraz”, and suddenly he fell to his knees at took out a ring he made himself out of wire and a red flower tucked into it from the garden. He asked me to be his wife and tears just fell down my cheek, YES this was more than I could have wished for!
What was your favorite memory from your proposal?
LOVE! I loved the warmth of that evening and never wanted it to end. Our son was born exactly nine months later.
What do you love most about each other?
Lina about Martin: I can’t think of anything more I’d want in a life partner. He is handsome, beautiful inside and out. He is caring, a wonderful father and he makes me want to be a better person. He also encourages my crazy ideas and hobbies and I’m so proud to soon be his wife!
Martin about Lina: I’m so happy to have a fiancé so filled with energy and life. Lina is a happy go lucky gal, always with new projects and with her by my side I’m never bored – ever! Her glittering eyes and her loving smile made me fall in love with her and keeps me falling in love over and over again. We are different in many ways and really compliment each other. She brings out the best in me.
