How We Met

Cody and I met at a dinner party for one of his good friends. I was dating someone else at the time, but it did not work out. I had been praying for the Lord to bring me my future husband. Little did I know that I met him that night! We kept in touch here and there through Facebook and instagram, but didn’t become a couple until a year ago. He asked me on our first date, which was January 17th, and it has been nothing but bliss ever since then.

how they asked

It was supposed to be a double date for my best friends birthday. We had a girls day, got out nails done, had lunch together, shopped for a new dress and excited to have a day to ourselves. It had been a very stressful couple weeks and it was much needed. I had no idea it would be the night he proposed. Cody picked me up in a Bentley, all dressed up in his suit, and took me to our favorite place called The Refuge. We waited until our good friends Mickela and Jay arrived. Once they came, the co-owner of the Refuge told us he had a bottle of wine for Cody and I to look at. So we got up and around the corner was a chalkboard wall that had some of our most memorable dates written out from the past year. I started reading it and it hit me. I then swirled around and He was on one knee and asked me to marry him! After that he told me that his parents, as well as mine, were on their way to meet us to celebrate. Later that night He explained to me that he picked February 20th to propose specifically because it is the same date that his father proposed to his mother 35 years ago. That melted my heart. I had been waiting for this moment my whole life, and it could not have been more perfect, memorable or extraordinary!
