We’ve heard of countless heartwarming proposal stories, but this one might just take the cake.
Tori Monaco, a senior at the University of Texas at Austin, and Berkley Cade, who is stationed with the Air Force in Texas, met online and have dated for close to a year.
Tori told Buzzfeed News that despite it being the first same-sex relationship for both of them, things were perfect from day one.
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! 🎄❤️
After dating for close to a year, Berkley knew she was ready to pop the question. After finding a ring, she told her mother, Kristy, and they worked on a plan together.
Berkley and Tori had planned a trip to Washington, so Berkley and Kristy concluded that this would be the perfect opportunity to pop the question – more specifically, during a game of Pictionary.
This was pretty exciting in and of itself, but things got really interesting when Kristy got a call from Tori. It turned out she had also bought a ring for Berkley and wanted to propose on the very same trip.
Kristy, the smart lady that she is, kept her cool and threw her full support behind Tori’s idea. Without spilling the beans on Berkley’s plans, Kristy subtly guided Tori to the idea of proposing during a game of Pictionary.
The inevitable game of Pictionary finally came about, and both girls were nervous as all hell. That said, they were still completely unaware of the other’s intentions.
According to Buzzfeed News, even Kristy had been losing sleep as she carefully planned the night in an effort to ensure it all went ahead without a hitch.
And that it did.

Who’s cutting onions?
Congrats to Kristy and Tori on proposing to each other in the same place, at the same time and in the same way – and both saying yes!
