After almost six wonderful years of dating, Chris proposed to me at one of the most romantic places in Seoul. North Seoul Tower or better known as Namsan Tower. But, let's not stop there, he planned it all very well. You see it was on my birthday in September, and at sunset and on the top of a mountain at the base of the tower in Seoul, South Korea. Pretty, amazing setting, if you ask me! However, it doesn't stop there..
You see, there is a kind of tradition on Namsan that involves locks. It's called "A promise for Endless Love." paragraph from the tower: "From old times, there was a story that if lovers make a wish at a shrine on Nam-san, it comes true. Since that, this place became a symbol of the place of promising an everlasting flove for couples' love with hanging a lock together. <A Lock of Love>, already famous by media, is not just expressing couples' love by hanging locks, but meaning endless love with experiencing unforgettable moment in the place you can see a view of Seoul...."
And so, we did just that. Poor Chris had a hard time finding a lock prior to the proposal so luckily that had some in the gift shop at the tower. We searched for a spot among the rows of locks and found a place with several older locks, thinking that ours would stand out better for a while. Later in December, we came back and had engagement pictures taken that we will cherish forever!
As for the ring...no, he didn't get it back home. The ring was purchased in Korea with the help of one of our co-teachers. If he would like to share the rest of that information, I'll leave that up to him. I will tell you, that the ring is absolutely beautiful!
