Danielle and Matthew

How We Met

We met in high school playing volleyball in March 2012. Our two schools were the only ones in our hometown that had men and women’s volleyball so they got together once a week for open gym. He was pretty good so I sent him a Facebook message and we went on our first date a week later. After spending almost every day together that summer, we began officially dating in August 2012 and have been together ever since. That means we’ve been together for homecomings, proms, high school graduations, starting college, college graduations, graduate school, and now a big kid job for him and medical school for me!

How They Asked

This wonderful man of mine worked with my sister to gather photos from our 6 years together and put them into a picture book. On the very last page of the book, it said, “Will you marry me?” There weren’t any fireworks or rose petals or surprise flights to Paris, but it was perfect. It was just him and I in our apartment in Dallas. I now have a new favorite book and can go back to that day every time I pick it up.
