How We Met
We had mutual friends and he sent me a friend request on Facebook. A few days later, in the middle of the night I got a private message of random letters from him. I normally would have just ignored it and gone about my day but he was a cute firefighter so I messaged him back thanking him for the friend request and started small talk. The rest is history.
How They Asked
He has 2 kids from a previous relationship and I have 1. We bought our house a few months ago and wanted to take some family pictures to hang up and celebrate our first Christmas in our new house. He proposed right in the middle and completely surprised me.
