We met at band camp. We both played the trumpet. He was a freshmen and I was a junior. I thought it would by crazy for us to date since I graduated in a couple years and I had no interest in under class men. We have been dating for over 5 years now.
We were on Christmas break and we went down to visit his grandparents near South Padre Island. It was New Year’s Eve and I wanted to go to the beach. We were the only ones on the beach when we went. It was pouring rain and so windy. If people saw us they would think we were crazy!! I finally got cold enough that I turned around to go back to the car.
No one else followed me. At that time he found a shell and told me to open it and I told him no because something could bite me!
Then he got down on his knee and I looked over at his grandma and she was recording the whole time.
