How We Met
We both had a mutual friend who decided to bring him to my church during our weekly Friday night bible studies. We became close friends for 2 years, and then I started dating him after that! So you could say God was our wingman!
How They Asked
It was our 5 year anniversary, and all we decided to do was eat dinner. I was so stoked to try out this steak house in Beverly Hills that day. We got our nails done (JR’s first time getting a mani/Pedi), got ready, and went for dinner. I was pretty tired that day, so I slept during our car ride. Next thing you know, I wake up and we’re in Huntington! I was a little upset since we weren’t going to get steak anymore, but the place we had dinner wasn’t too bad either since we had a beach view. After dinner, he said he wanted to catch the sunset at the dog beach (which we usually go with our dog). I gave him a little sass because all this time we could’ve brought our dog with us. At this point, I noticed he was starting to walk faster to the beach, but his excuse was that he didn’t want to miss the sunset.
So once we got on the beach, I noticed a familiar pillow from far away, and I thought to myself “no way that’s my pillow”. As we got closer and closer to where my pillow was, there was a beautiful picnic set up for us. At this point, I had a hunch of what was going to happen. But since our first date was also a surprise picnic, I didn’t let my mind assume. We sat down, and then he opened up the picnic basket.
He told me 3 things he loved about me. On the third point, my dog comes out of nowhere with a little backpack. JR then pulls out the ring, and musters up the words in the midst of all the emotions, and asks the notorious question!
