How We Met
Brady and I actually went to rival high schools and grew up with a few mutual friends. It wasn’t until 5 years after college (and because of those mutual friends 😉) did we go out on our first date. We started hanging out around my birthday, so to celebrate, Brady asked me out to dinner. It was like a shockwave went through us when we realized how quickly we were clicking. The rest was history. ❤️
How They Asked
Exactly three years later to the day, Brady suggested we have a little housewarming/birthday party for me at our newly purchased first home. Both our families had been eager to see the new place, but due to COVID, those plans had been delayed. We finally decided to have a little backyard gathering so everyone would feel comfortable celebrating ( social distance-wise) outside.
Little did I know he had been planning this for months! As our families started to sing the birthday song, Brady cut open the cake to show a ring design baked inside. He cut the cake so quickly so I completely missed it! I always thought that when this moment would happen I would sense it. But I ABSOLUTELY had no idea 🤦🏽♀️. To my shock, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him in front of those closest to us. It was the best birthday I could have ever imagined. 🥰
