How We Met

We met in the craziest of ways. My friend Kelly runs a blog and every year she does a singles day. In 2019, she did it on Instagram. I saw John Michael and thought he was cute, so I slid into his DMs one afternoon. He asked me on a date shortly afterward. I declined because I was leaving town the next day. But he asked a week later and we went on a 13-hour long date! And the rest is history!

How They Asked

My birthday was on April 19th and I was bummed to be spending it stuck inside. So, my roommates decided to surprise me with all of us getting dressed up in dresses and going to pick up ice cream at my favorite place. Little did I know that my boyfriend had staged the whole thing and was hiding in my backyard when I got home.

He had been emailing my friends for the past 30 days asking them to sing parts of Love Story by Taylor Swift (since I’m a huge fan of her music). I came into my backyard to see my sister and best friend & her family all holding Taylor Swift song lyrics signs.

And then walked to an iPad he had laid out and clicked play. My chin hit the ground the second I saw my first friend singing. Then he snuck up behind me while I was watching the end of the video and got down on one knee and proposed.
