Adorable Fall Proposal to Keep Your Halloween Spirit Alive

Kristen’s Team Pick

Blegh, it’s November! It’s cold, rainy and I’m running perilously low on Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Luckily this story came up on my news feed to completely distract me from my chocolate woes.

Seriously, this is the best thing I’ve seen all November! Even cuter than the bun in the oven (complete with turkey baster) costumed lesbians. I’m pretty sure I have compartments in my heart specifically for Halloween, creative proposals, choreographed dances and cute girls in leather jackets.

Meet Rosana and Jerilyn, a newly engaged couple from Brookline that just happen to love ghosts, Halloween and each other. On a rainy October day, Rosana arranged for a Harvard Square Ghost Tour with an extra surprise at the end.

She had no idea. She didn’t even know why I started dancing. She just assumed I was being crazy and wanted to dance.

I’m down on one knee, asking the girl that changed my life to let me be in hers forever. I will never forget that moment and all of the people that made it possible. I honestly would not change one thing about that day and, luckily, neither would she.

Once again, lesbians prove that we can do anything just as well — if not better — than straight couples. I’ll forgive the Chris Brown song because that girl has moves! If you still know someone voting for Romney, forward them this video before Tuesday and see if their heart grows a size.


Hailing from Vancouver, Kristen's still trying to figure out how to survive Montreal's Real Legitimate Canadian Winter. So far she's discovered that warm socks, giant toques and Tabby kittens all play a role in her survival. Her ultimate goal is to rank higher than KStew in the "Kristen + Autostraddle" Google Search competition.
