How We Met
Me and my fiancé are from the same small town of Rome,GA. We met in June of 2011 , he was gone for 8 months of the year because of work ,and I was a single mom and wasn’t looking. We were set up by our friends for a “blind date”. Knowing he was only home for the summer I wasn’t really expecting us to be more than friends. I was one of those people that didn’t think long distance relationships would ever work .. little did I know! He did end up switching jobs a year into our relationship which made us closer being able to spend more time together .. Here we are almost 6 years later and the best part is that him and my daughter are inseparable !
how they asked
On December 26, 2016, he wanted to take my daughter,Sophia, flying because she had never been in a small airplane.We are living in Raleigh,NC but we were in Rome, Ga for the holidays. We took off, and flew for about an hour , I was feeling sick because he was letting Sophia fly so I asked him to land . When we got out of the airplane both of our families rushed out at us . I was so overwhelmed and surprised – especially since we’d been dating for five and a half years!
He proposed to me with a little airplane that had my ring on the propellor . He was so nervous and said “Five and a half hours ago you stole my heart ” I laughed and cried, it was perfect, and I’m so thankful he included my daughter and our families !
