She said yes.

A touching story from the wake of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings: According to CBS Boston James “Bim” Costello has found the love of his life.

Costello suffered severe shrapnel and burns in the terrorist attack.

In the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital he met nurse Krista D’Agostino and fell in love.

The two are now engaged to be married and are on an all-expenses paid cruise in the South of France with other survivors.

Costello wrote about the engagement on Facebook:

“As you all know, April 15th was one of the worst days of my life, suffering not only physical injuries of my own but the emotional difficulties when I learned about my friends,” he said. “I soon wondered why and for what reason this had happened. A couple weeks later I was transferred to Spaulding Hospital, where I was able to see my friends starting to heal, but still wondered what good could come from this tragedy. A few days later I saw a nurse in passing, this would turn out to be Krista, who had shared a few mutual friends, but we had never crossed paths before. After sharing a handful of conversations I realized not only how beautiful she was but also what a kind heart she had.”
