How We Met
Jamal and I met at the highschool we both worked at. He was the athletic trainer & I am the cheerleading coach! After months of denying our feelings for eachother, we went on our first date and the rest was history!
How They Asked
We flew to Hawaii! On one of our walks to a light house, Jamal pulled off to a random ledge on the side of a mountain! I wasn’t expecting it. We looked out for a bit and he said “okay, let’s keep going.” I turned around to head back to the trail. That’s when he grabbed my hand and began his sweet speech! It was so thoughtful and I’m so impressed at how confident he was in asking me. I, of course, was initially balling tears and in disbelief. He got down on a knee and I kept asking “are you serious” through my tears. He pulled out the box and I realized… he WASNT kidding. I undoubtedly said YES through my head nodding and crying. He did so good and I can’t wait for forever with Jamal. We spent the rest of the week celebrating our engagement in Hawaii!
