How We Met

Tyler and I met a little over 2 years ago but have known about each other for a while since we have many of the same friends. After a little courage and help of a good friend the two of us decided to hang out.

Tyler showed up with flowers the first time hanging out and I knew there was something special about him. We began seeing each other while Tyler was away at college, commuting across the state of FL almost every other week to see each other!

how they asked

After a long year and a half of commuting I moved to be where Tyler was, we planned a family vacation for the end of that year to be with my family for Thanksgiving. We spent Thanksgiving in Asheville NC and the day after Thanksgiving went to the Biltmore. Walked around for the day, had dinner and then ended the day in an area where lights dropped from the trees all the way to the floor. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen.

I mentioned to Tyler over and over leading up to the trip that we had to go see these lights! It’s wasn’t out of character that as soon as we laid eyes on them he called me over for a picture. As my family stood nearby, Tyler handed me his phone which began playing a slideshow of all the pictures we had taken over the last 2 years.

At the very end was a picture of my son holding a sign reading “say yes mommy” and at that very moment Tyler got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Let’s just say I was a complete mess but gave him a big yes (or a crying head nod if that counts)! The night was so perfect and so magical!!
