Ann and Jonathan met each other while they were both studying at the University of Maryland. As their love and bond grew stronger, Jonathan finally proposed to Ann on spring of 2013 at the National Arboretum in Washington DC. Ann and Jonathan picked out the ring together, so Ann knew that he was going to propose to her. She anticipated that Jonathan was not going to propose to her until after he finished his classes in May. However, Jonathan had a different plan and wanted to do it sooner. Unbeknownst to Ann of his true intention, he suggested that they should go to the National Arboretum to see a whole hillside full of blooming azaleas. There was one occasion, however, where Ann thought that he was going to propose to her because she saw a box-like bulge in Jonathan’s pocket. Apparently it was only his cell phone.
The day finally came for them to go to the Arboretum. Because of the previous “incident”, Jonathan had to be sneaky and decided to hide the ring in his wallet. When they arrived to where the azaleas were, it was crowded with visitors, and so it was hard for Jonathan to find a nice secluded spot. Luckily, he found a great spot for them to sit down. They sat on a rock under a beautiful tree. Although being super sneaky, Jonathan had thought that she knew that it was coming. Apparently he caught her completely by surprise!
Great job Jonathan!
