This was a holiday proposal to melt even the coldest of hearts.
The two women in the picture got engaged recently in the middle of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a complete stranger got all emotional over their undying love.
Jessica Rodriguez, a 25-year-old law student and her now fiancé, Chelsea Miller, a 26-year-old full-time nanny and student, met on Tumblr, and have been together for over four years. They live together in Chicago.
“We have traveled to various art museums in Texas, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. I once worked in an art gallery called the Wynne Home Arts Center and we even have a custom painting of our baby, Gatsby, a cavalier King Charles spaniel puppy,” Jessica told BuzzFeed of why she chose the museum. “I just knew I had to hold on to love as much as I could since our days are counted. So I went and bought the ring.”
And the woman who couldn’t help but share in their love?
The couple didn’t notice her until after the proposal, when Jessica’s brother posted the image to Twitter with her in the background.
It now has more than 87,000 retweets.
So, take that! Love wins!
