One week, Victor visited Grace at home every single day. Everyone else knew what was going on, but Grace had no idea: thinking that it was just nice to hang out with a friend.
Victor and Grace like hiking and biking for fun in their spare time. In fact, on their first date, they went for a bike ride from Brampton to Toronto, pedaling hard on their mountain bikes. Amazingly, they made it! One of their first adventures together — little did they know that that adventure would seal the deal.
Now, picture the scene: Victor tells Grace that they should go for a hike together, Rouge River Park, rose petals on logs leading to a clearing, and a bottle of champagne with 2 glasses. He turns to her and tells her how much he cherishes her, he gets down on one knee, asks the question, and she says “Yes”! Even though she saw her friend wearing a bright orange sweatshirt, holding a camera, and trying to hide behind a tree, Grace was still completely surprised :) Nice!
P.S. I’m looking forward to their small and intimate wedding at Sassafraz Restaurant in a few months — they first visited Sassafraz during Summerlicious and fell in love with it! Which restaurants did you try this year? Who knows, it might become a special place for you too! :)
