Life Imitates Art

On October 10, 2009, my best friend gave me the surprise of my life at Disneyland Park. Near Pirates of the Carribbean is an artist who draws caricatures and Jason wanted to have one done of me. I said fine, but I had a feeling something was up his sleeve.

The whole time she was working, the artist wouldn’t let me see the drawing. I started getting mad because I was hungry and cold, and I thought she was drawing me with big cheeks, because people were smiling every time they walked by.

By the time she finally said, “You can see your picture now,” I just wanted to leave. When I looked at it I thought it was a joke – it showed my boyfriend, Jason, down on one knee. But when I turned to Jason he really was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He truly brought the picture to life! When I saw him I started to cry and whispered “Yes.” It’s a day I will never forget. Thanks, Disneyland!
