Stephan and Samantha have quite the proposal story. They’ve known each others since kindergarten but fell for each on Valentine’s Day in 7th grade. After losing touch for a few years, they reconnected in 11th grade and knew their love would last. Samantha returned from a trip to Europe a few months ago and was disapointed when Stephan told her they wouldn’t be able to get engaged for some time. Later when she got to her car, she noticed a note written in “poetic form.” On it were clues leading Samantha on a scavenger hunt to places significant to their relationship. It ended at the field where they had their first date…a soccer game Samantha had invited Stephan to.
