How We Met
I am 24 and he is 23. We first met when I moved to town in 2008, and he was friends with my brother. He moved around. on New Years Eve 2017 he came to my house to drop a lizard house off for my brothers lizard really quick. He ended up playing monopoly and that’s when I knew I wanted to marry him. he just recently told me that he had a crush on me since I moved to town in 2008.
Lighthouses are our favorite thing to go see. We both love them and always went to them even before we starting dating.
How They Asked
I had been hinting for a while that I wanted to get engaged, and I knew he had something in the works. but I was not expecting it when it happened. We were driving up the coast with my sister and our friend Dani, (thanks for the awesome pictures D) and I wasn’t even questioning it. It was after a long weekend away, and we were all tired but decided to drive the coast and walk the beaches anyway because we never turn a coast ride down. I fell asleep in the car and woke up when we pulled into Great Island Commons and was happy because you can see 2 Lighthouses from the park. I still wasn’t questioning anything, which surprised me because I was suspecting a proposal anytime we went out for like 2 months, but not this time.
We were walking the park and we went to the rocks and my sister had us all take pictures with each other and Jake said it would be cool if she took a picture of us looking out at the water, and then if we got a picture like Rose and Jack from Titanic and when I put my arms out he did for a second then backed off and tapped my back so I turned around asking what he was doing and he was on one knee and asked me to marry him, all he could get out was “will you marry me” because he was so nervous.
The first thing I said was “are you serious?” then I said yes! Now I can’t wait to marry my best friend!
