Deona and Jamie

How We Met

Love is patient. Love is kind ♥

Jamie and I met on Bumble in early August 2017. We both were in similar stages in our lives and hit it off from the start. We talked non-stop for 2 weeks before meeting August 18th, 2017 for dinner & drinks at a local restaurant named Redstone. Let’s just say we were the last two people at the bar that night as the conversation kept us intrigued while wanting to know more about each other. We exclusively dated for 2 months while taking things gradually before Jamie surprised me with a carved pumpkin ? October 18, 2017, asking me to be his GF! After I said yes, he handed me a thoughtful card with a spare key to his apartment. He showered me throughout the relationship with unconditional love, gifts & flowers, especially sunflowers since they are my favorite. Jamie asked me to move into his apartment 9 months later when my lease was up. I decided to take a leap of faith and I’m so glad I did. The love and appreciation we have for each other continues to grow each day.

I love how healthy, genuine and well balanced this relationship is. We have experienced amazing memories together and he is hands down my best friend. I’m so blessed God placed him in my life when he did. What we have is truly beautiful and special!

How They Asked

My WORLD ? stopped for a minute on June 2, 2019, when in the midst of our busy weekend I was proposed ?to @ the end of an “Escape Room Challenge” while on a double date with our awesome friends Kyle & Angelica Snyder (who helped make the day/night run so smoothly). We came straight from a 30th birthday party in Philly, enjoyed delicious milkshakes from The Pop Shop before heading to the Escape Room Challenge…

No words could truly describe the array of emotions that hit me as I was beyond shocked & surprised! Behind the final door was a winner sign, fake money & a white gold halo ring. I was so caught off guard I barely took notice to Jamie on his knee behind me until reality hit me 5 minutes later. My family waiting in another room while watching the hidden camera “behind the scenes” to be right there to surprise me when I walked out was unlike anything I have ever experienced ???

I said YES! for many, many reasons… Jamie – you have a heart of GOLD, REPEAT GOLD, that always chooses me, loves me, appreciates me & nurtures what we have daily, no matter what. I admire you in more ways than you know & for who you are as a person. You’re an amazing, thoughtful, genuine, loyal & honest soul which has allowed me to choose you as my forever partner to share this journey with through thick & thin ahead!

Special Thanks
