How We Met
Cole and I met in 2012 when we started high school and became friends soon after. We sat together at lunchtime every day with our friends and became great friends although he did not know I had a huge crush on him. In the summer of 2014, I asked him to be my first kiss because all my friends had theirs and I felt left out (very embarrassing). Nothing happened from there but we stayed friends and in December of 2015 over Christmas break we started talking and never stopped.
We spent that New Year together and knew quickly that we liked each other. February 12th, 2016 Cole asked me to be his girlfriend by asking if I would accept a rose (since we loved the bachelor so much). From there we knew we would be together forever. A year later he gave me a promise ring while we were in university together and now here we are engaged 3 years later!
How They Asked
Cole asked me to go on a date to one of our favorite spots near our hometown. I didn’t think too much of it because we love watching sunsets there. He showed up to my house with sushi for dinner and we drove out to watch the sunset. When we got there he set up the camera to film a time-lapse (so I thought) and we sat and talked and danced and watched the sunset.
When he asked me to dance he put on two of our favorite songs, Made for You by Jake Owen and In Case You Didn’t Know by Brett Young. He started saying all these adorable, sappy things that he usually says but when he reached in his coat pocket I knew the day I had been dreaming of was finally here and I instantly started to cry. It was the most magical moment and I will never forget it.
