Houston’s #ILoveYouWall- Graffiti Tour Proposal

 All who have visited Houston in the last couple of years have noticed its art murals. If you haven’t, it’s time you paid a visit to the Heights, Eado, or all central Houston for that matter. There are so many bad ass murals all over town, you will be mind-blown. Kind of like I was exactly one week ago when one of my best friends proposed to his girlfriend in front of their own “I Love You” wall.

Since their first date over a year ago, when he took her to see some of Houston’s graffiti walls, he knew she was the one. He also knew he wanted to make his marriage proposal exceptionally special and memorable. And that, my friends, he did! He was able to get in contact with a local Houston artist, Shelbi Nicole, who has several murals and other artwork all over the city. Read more about her art work here.

The plan was to create an art wall that represented both, my friend Joshua and his girlfriend Alicia, but also one that could be relatable to the public. Mastermind Shelbi and Joshua came up with the idea of an “I Love You” wall for his surprise proposal, and it turned out fantastical.

Exactly one week ago Joshua, Alicia, and a couple of other friends (myself included) went on a graffiti tour led by Shelbi. She showed us really great wall art by various Houston graffiti artists, including her own #PolkaDotWall (one of my faves). The last stop was her brand new #ILoveYouWall, where Joshua proposed to Alicia. The reveal was the best, I was so nervous and so excited for all three of them- Shelbi included cos she did an amazing job touring us and of course creating and revealing the ILY wall.

I cannot think of a better way to end 2016. Seeing both, Joshua and Shelbi, prepare for so long and finally seeing Alicia’s expression when she realized what she was standing in front of made that day one of the best days of 2016. Nevertheless, a great way to say goodbye to a new year and begin a new one. So much happiness. So much love. Cheers to 2017 and having many #ILoveYouWall moments!

I filmed the proposal, scroll down and check out the big moment for yourself! *warning, it’s a bit shaky in the beginning, and you might hear me shriek of joy. Also, it might make you sob a bit.* lol

Isn’t this the cutest thing? I call it the best graffiti tour in Houston’s history! What do you think?

Stay groovy,
