How We Met
Cj and I go wayyyy back. We actually first met when we were in Middle school. So we have literally known each other for almost 10 years now! We met in Middle school and he asked me to be his girlfriend. Now in middle school this translates into we will only hang out at school and sometimes talk on the phone (at least that’s how it was for us). ;) We were both super shy when we first met. Heck we were just kids! It wasn’t till my Junior year of high school till we actually started dating. But ever since then I knew I could rely on Cj for anything and everything. He has been my best friend and love of my life ever since.
how they asked
Cj asked me to marry him on August 22, 2015. I had no idea. He blind folded me and took me to my parents house where he put lights all over a tree and pictures of us hanging down from the branches. All our memories were literally right in front of us sparkling in the light. He got down on one knee and unfortunately I blacked out. ( I was just so excited!) Somewhere in the middle of the tears and excitement I heard,” God has given me the greatest gift of getting to know you and having you in my life. You will be my best friend after we grow old. I love you today. I will love you tomorrow. I will love you for the rest of my life.”
