Tori Monaco and Berkley Cade started dating a year ago after meeting online. After hitting it off right away, the couple knew they had found something truly special.
Tori told BuzzFeed News that she” immediately saw a future with Cade soon after they met.”
“We are each other’s first same-sex relationship, so we were blown away by our ability to connect with each other immediately and find the happiness we had been looking for.
Cade felt the same way, and realized after a year, she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Tori. She and her mother, Kristy, began brainstorming ways she could put a ring on it and propose to her girlfriend.
A couple months ago I thought I would never get a real hug from my mom again, a couple months ago I was dreading this holiday gathering, a couple months ago I thought I would stop being apart of the family. Today I write this post after a very successful couple of days where Berkley and I laughed, hugged, and loved everyone. I have never felt more a part of my family. Can't wait for the many more celebrations to come! MERRY CHRISTMAS! ?❤️
The two decided a creative an adorable way for Cade to pop the question–while visiting her family in Washington. They decided to do it during a game of Pictionary, how sweet, right?
Shortly after they planned the proposal, Tori called Cade’s mom to say she had bought a ring and wanted to propose on the same trip to Washington this month–the same plan Cade had.
Instead of letting either girl know their plans, Kristy decided to make it so they both proposed at the same time. How clever. She told Tori it was a “great idea,” and went above and beyond to time it all out. Tori told BuzzFeed Kristy said:
“When in the universe will there ever be two lesbians that want to propose at the same time, the same day, the same place, and the same way? I have to get it right.”
