How We Met
It all started 8 years ago. We both live in the same city and every year our city puts on this big festival called the sound of music. We were both going out with our friends that nights (not knowing each other yet). Our mutual friends introduced us that night. After talking to each other for a while, Tom asked me for my number. We exchanged numbers and ended up talking for a couple of days through text on and off before going out on a double date together with friends. We immediately hit it off that summer getting together whenever we could. Then on one of our date nights he was walking me home where he asked me to be his girlfriend.
How They Asked
After 8 years of dating, moving in, and doing life together. He proposed to me on September 25, 2018. He had the whole day planned. Dinner out at Spencers on the water where we had first met. We later took a walk around the waterfront. We later went back to our condo where we went up to our rooftop patio for a glass of wine.
As soon as I opened the door I saw the most romantic set up. “Marry me” spelled out in tea lights with a bottle of champagne, candles, and sunflowers. I turned around and he was on one knee asking me to marry me. It was the biggest surprise of my life, I had no clue this was going to happen. I’m so gratefully for everything in my life that has to lead me to him. He’s my forever and more kind of person.
