Allison and Rocco
How We Met
Rocco and I went to the same high school but he was four years older than I was. His mom was my little sisters preschool teacher; our moms became good friends and introduced us to one another. Ever since that day we have been inseparable.
How They Asked
We were on vacation with his family. We were in Turks and Caicos, his sister and I went kayaking to the other side of the beach to look for shells to bring home with us. When we started to go back by our family Rocco and his brother were collecting seashells. His mom yells for all of us to take a group picture, I walked over to Rocco to see what shells he had found. He was showing me all of the shells that he had collected and then said: “This shell is my favorite” and opens a shell with my ring in it. He proceeded to get down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him!
