How We Met
We met all the way back in sixth grade. We dated for a few months and broke up, we were kids! We remained friends then went our separate ways after high school. I joined the Navy and he stayed back home. We both ended up getting married and each of us had a kid. We both got divorced shortly after. I got out of the military 10 years later and we started hanging out again when I moved back home. We were finally adults and realized how much we truly loved each other. We had a kid of our own and bought a house. We went out to bring in the new year with some friends.
How They Asked
One of his friends is a professional photographer and wanted to take some pictures of the Christmas tree downtown. I want him to succeed so I agreed to wait around and watch him. He ended up asking if he could take our pictures by the tree and I thought, sure, we could use some good pictures of us! That’s when he got down on one knee and proposed to me. After 3 years of dating and having talked about not getting married I never expected it. I was beyond excited to scream YES, after I asked him several times if he was serious and sure he wanted to marry me!
