How We Met
Tanner and I met in the 9th grade. We ended up going to different high schools so we didn’t get to see each other often. Through mutual friends, we reconnected the end of our senior year. After graduation he has asked me to be his girlfriend although I was leaving for college 3 hours away, we both thought this might just be a summer fling but 5 years later he put a ring on it!
How They Asked
Every year we do a big vacation together, this year we decided to join his parents at the beach. All week his dad wanted to go out to get sunset pictures, but every night was just a little too cloudy or we had already missed the best part of the sunset. Towards the end of our vacation, we had a fire on the beach and when Tanner’s dad suggested walking across the way to get better pictures of the sunset I didn’t think twice to it.
Tanner and I actually hadn’t taken too many pictures together this trip, which was unusual for us (self-proclaimed selfie queen over here). His mom offered to take a picture for us and I complained tanner had his hand inside of his hoodie and asked him to take it out, next thing I knew he was down on one knee asking me to spend the rest of forever with him. Chincoteague and sunsets will forever hold a special place in our!
