Alexandra and Eric

How We Met

I was engaged once before and thought my life was just beginning until the worst thing imaginable happened. My fiancé passed away. I thought I would never love again. He was an only child and so I remained really close with his parents. They always told me that Logan would want me to be happy again but I just didn’t know if I would be. Fast track 3 years later. I had been dating recently but just had never felt that spark I felt when Logan and I had first met. I was about to give up when along came Eric. He completely swept me off my feet and within a month, I knew that one day I was going to marry him. He was so kind and gentle and understanding of my past. He always knew how important Logan’s parents were to me and as our relationship continued to blossom, he knew how important it was to me that he meet them. So one night, we had dinner with them. They loved him. Logan’s mom even said to me that she could tell he was it for me.

how they asked

On the day before Easter, Eric told me to get ready for dinner that he had a surprise for me. We got in the car but he wouldn’t tell me where we were going, only where to turn. Next thing I know, we are pulling into Fairmount park. I began pulling up the drive way when he started laughing. I wasn’t sure what he was laughing at so I started looking all over. He told me to look back at mansion that was there and see if I saw anything. I got out of the car and began walking closer only to see a sign addressed to me, asking me to marry him. I turned around and he was on one knee with the most beautiful diamond I had ever seen! Of course I said yes! After telling my mother and father and his parents, the next thing I did was tell Logan’s mom. She was beyond excited and happy for us and I finally felt whole again. The love I had with Logan is my past and losing him was devastating but I feel he was watching over me and he brought me Eric together for a reason. I can’t imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone but him and I feel so blessed to be able to experience true love again!
