How We Met

DJ and I are both from the Washington, D.C. area. However, it wasn’t until he was stationed in Del Rio/ San Antonio, Texas while I was attending school in San Antonio that we actually met. We have been inseparable ever since!

how they asked

DJ is an F-22 pilot in the Air Force and had been away for four weeks. He was due back on Valentines weekend. Little did I know it would be an extra special homecoming.

The families went out to the flight line to watch the jets land and taxi in. I had started to realize that the entire squadron was following me to DJ’s jet. Before I knew it, DJ had stepped down from his jet and was immediately on one knee. (The whole squadron was in on it and kept it a secret for the longest time!)

Not only was a photographer there to capture the whole thing…but we also ended up on the local news!
