How We Met
Eric and I were high school sweethearts. We met when we were 14 at our church youth group, and had our first real conversation when we were 15. I was smitten. He was so good looking and was genuinely interested in my life. We grew really close over the next year, and eventually I told him I liked him. We’ve been together since February 2013! We always had so much fun together and he was my best friend through thick and thin.
how they asked
March 18, 2017, was just a regular Saturday. I had purchased tickets for Eric and I go to see Beauty and the Beast at the movie theatre that evening, so Eric asked if I wanted to hangout in the afternoon as well. He picked me up at 1pm, and suggested we go for a walk in a park that’s downtown in our city. I was a little confused since Eric doesn’t typically enjoy going for leisurely walks, but quickly obliged as he was willing to spend this wonderful quality time together! It was a little rainy, so he suggested we get coffee first to help keep us warm. As we walked through the park, hand in hand with our Starbucks, Eric began talking about how long we had been together, and how much he loved doing life with me. I instantly knew what was happening, and couldn’t stop the tears from flowing! Eric and I had talked a lot about getting married, but at 19, the proposal was a little sooner than I had anticipated! I was in complete shock and totally surprised! I instantly said yes when he got down on one knee, and was oblivious to the fact that his friend was in the bushes taking pictures. It was the best moment of my life, and I can’t wait to say “I do” to the man of my dreams on September 29, 2018!
