How We Met

Delonte and I met in middle school where I realized how handsome he was! He and I dated briefly before parting ways in high school (we both moved to different cities). We stayed in touch while he was in the United States Navy. We rekindled our fling in 2014 and we now have two beautiful boys!!

how they asked

Delonte and I planned a trip home to visit his parents for Memorial Day weekend. We anticipated having a small cookout with his parents, his sister, our children, and his recently married aunt and her husband. His sister just recently got hired for a government job and she asked me to go to her room to look at possible outfits for her upcoming work week. I followed her upstairs along with his aunt and we had a good time trying on clothes and talking. His mom came to the room to get us to bless the food before we eat. At the bottom of the steps Delonte was waiting for me and he said that he had to tell me something. I didn’t think anything out of the ordinary so I followed him into the living room. As I turned the corner I realized my entire family and my friends were waiting for us. Instantly I knew he was going to propose. After he told me how he felt about me, he couldn’t even finish my name before I said yes!!! I was so excited I didn’t even let him ask me to marry him!!
