How We Met

Marcus and I met on a Wednesday evening at our church. I was sitting by myself just relaxing when I could feel someone starting at me…(you know what I mean) I turned and he was sitting next to me, smiling, and he asked, “Wanna take a selfie with me?” To this I replied,” no.” From here on he was strictly my friend. However, over the next six months he and I started talking and became close friends…. Well he also wouldn’t leave me alone. Almost everyday for those six months he would ask me out, which I refused. He and I had become really great friends and I was afraid to ruin that. Finally, after all that time of him asking I finally accepted and we began dating.

how they asked

Well, one year and a half later(Aug 24- MY grandparents 69th wedding anniversary!!!!) my best friend took me to Trinity Park in Fort Worth when Marcus met me with the most gorgeous pear shaped ring.

As he got down on one knee, with my favorite Celine Dion song playing in the background, he asked me to be his “person” (Greys anatomy reference) and his wife. Of course I said yes finally!!!

Having him propose on my grandparents 69th wedding anniversary was more special than I could possibly say. They are truly an inspiration.
