Dominique and Darren

How We Met

Darren and I met in high school, it had just been luck that he actually came to my school just for a specific shop class. One day while I was in school my older sister came running up to me to let me know that this boy liked me. At first I didn’t believe it and didn’t want to hear about it so I just went on with my day. The next day she had came up to me again, “MEEK MEEK, this guy really likes you”! I started wondering who he was and what he looked like. I had my sister and her boyfriend at the time point him out to me. And sure enough wouldn’t you know its the typical bad boy stereotype who drives a bad ass motorcycle everyone loves. At first I was skeptical about getting to know him, but I would notice every time I walked past the school windows he would look up at me and smile. He eventually asked me out to the theaters were we watched Scary Movie 4. Half way through the movie he his arm around me and I snuggled into him. I knew in that moment we had something special. And so our love story began. ♥

how they asked

Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale…..

It was our 5th Christmas together and I just knew something was up with the way he was around me. Christmas Eve came around the corner so fast that we were both really excited to finally see what we got each other! He is a diesel mechanic so I got him what he loves most, tools! I on the other hand waited patiently as he wanted to wait more in the evening to give me my gift. I agreed and we went on with our day. Later that night I told him “Babe I am sorry but I can no longer wait, can I have my gift now”. He grinned at me and gave me a dashing stare with his deep brown eyes and said okay. We went over to the Christmas tree with the lights glowing in the dark of the Eve to search for my gift. I only saw one massive box with the name “MEEK” on it. I thought to myself, this can’t be a ring, but whatever it is I will love it regardless. I started unwrapping the gift while Darren stood behind me. Once I finally unwrapped the gift I opened it up to see a bouquet of roses with a little note that said: “I love you, I’ve shared a lot of great memories with you so I think it’s time to ask you a question”.I turned around to find him on one knee and with a shaky voice he asked me the most amazing question I have ever heard. “Dominique Monika Penner, will you marry me”? With tears rolling down my cheeks I through my arms around him and whispered in his ear “yes”. It was such a unforgettable night for the both of us, we have never been happier knowing that we get to marry our high school sweet heart. ♥
