We met online in November of 2006.

We talked on the phone for a couple of months and finally met in person on January 13th, 2007. It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!!! We felt like we already knew each other. Long night conversations on the phone…

Fast forward 7 years later…to December 25th, 2014. We had Christmas morning at my mom’s and Grandma’s house as normal.

My little cousin, at the time she was 13. She had been begging my then boyfriend to give me a ring. When was he going to give me a ring. Constantly!!! So on our way to his mom’s house, we stopped by my Aunt, Uncle and little cousin’s house. He told my little cousin a secret and she couldn’t tell anybody…not even her mom!!! ??

I had no clue…it was just Christmas as normal…love being around family all day and eating great food!!! It was wonderful!

Well, 12/27/14, just 2 days after Christmas…and we were all at his mom’s house…and he wanted to play the infamous game cards against humanity. If you know this game, it’s a fun game…but even better drinking. Or that’s how we normally play.

It was 10:30 in the morning…and he wants to play this drinking game??? Why??? ???

Well now we know why…

So his entire family was sitting around his mom’s kitchen table and some were standing and we played a few rounds of cards against humanity.

His brother sitting on one side of me…and my then boyfriend on the other side. I got dealt the card (as pictured above). He made his own card that says “Will you Marry me?” I had to let it all soak in and re-read what I was seeing…because I couldn’t believe it!!!! Then I looked at Mike and he asked me to marry him…of course I said yes…and started ugly crying!!! I was the happiest girl on earth!!!!

His whole family “cheered” to us and we drank Champange at 10:45 in the morning!!! Hahaha

It was GREAT!!!!

We got married in May 2016 in Wrightsville Beach, NC. It was the best day ever!!!

We have been together almost 11 years in January, engaged since Dec. 2014 and Happily Married since May 22nd, 2016!!!

He’s my best friend, my rock, and my shoulder to cry on! I can’t imagine doing life with anyone but Mike B!!
