Jessica and JP
Jessica and JP[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]S[/dropcap]o the story of how my fiancé proposed to me is untraditional but super romantic as I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie.
JP (my fiancé) decided to organise a surprise “birthday party” for me. He woke me early on Saturday the 15th of December and told me to hurry up as a few close friends and family were on their way as he had planned an early birthday outing – my birthday being on December 18th and on a weekday I thought it was rather sweet. As our guests arrived we packed into cars and head off to Soweto Towers. JP being my perfect balance doesn’t enjoy extreme adventure sports, so when he told me we were going to do a 40 meter scad free fall I was in shock! I was jumping around ever so excited as this was the best birthday present I could’ve asked for.
I noticed JP was getting very fidgety and couldn’t even write his name on the release form. I wrote this off to him being afraid of heights… little did I know. JP and I started our lengthy journey to the inside of the Soweto Towers, standing waiting for our turn. I turned and looked down to see our friends and family waving eagerly – also too “afraid” to do the fall.
As the previous group of people left JP started proposing, a couple of feet above the earth!!!! He was so nervous he forgot to go down on his knee, then when he realised fumbled down. He asked me to marry him and whether I would take this extra leap of faith with him – 40 meter free fall was the furthest thing from my mind at that second. I said yes and JP took the wrong hand which I helped him with, only to realise we were both shaking so much it took a little longer J with our family and friends all excited down below.
We continued on to do our SCAD fall and it was amazing. The whole day was just PERFECT and the most romantic day of my life.
