How We Met
We have known each other since middle school. We were really close friends through high-school, the same friend group and graduated together. We didn’t get together romantically until his last year in college. I am a huge believer in timing and the universe waited for the perfect time to bring us together!
How They Asked
I was so surprised. I always thought I would have seen it coming but he totally shocked me! We had just gone to the pet store to get a new harness for our dog and he said: “let’s go to the park and test it out”. He brought me to a park that is down the street from where we live and we go there regularly (it is one of our favorite places to go). We started walking a bit around the lake and he pulled my arm to turn me and I watched him start going down on one knee. I remember my heart started racing so fast. All I remember is him saying “you are the love of my life” and I couldn’t hear anything else because I was in such shock! I kept asking him if it was really happening. And all I remember after is him asking if I said yes yet so he could stand up. And of course, I said yes!!
