How We Met
We met in high school. We dated for a brief time and decided to just stay friends. We stayed in touch through college years. Eventually 10 years after high school we ended up back together!
how they asked
Every year his family has a picture made with Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Geoffrey and his dad are huge fisherman. We had planned to meet his family on Friday December 2 to do the annual photo. We arrived early to get the passes and awaited the rest to arrive. His brother arrived first and we stood talking while Geoffrey went to meet his parents at the front of the store, this is when he got the ring from his mother. We then got in line with the whole family for the photo. The whole time I’m thinking of what silly face I’m going to make in the funny picture. It’s finally our turn and we are to take 3 pictures. First the typical smiling photo. Then the second was to be funny, in between the first and second I’m looking around asking what everyone is doing for the funny picture. He the. Took my arm and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!
This ended up being the second picture!!! I was completely surprised and overwhelmed with happiness!!! Santa was surprised as me! The whole line of people started congratulating us! Then while we were ordering pictures my mom appeared and hugged me, he had planned for her to be there along with my cousin, they were hiding in the wildlife displays upstairs videoing the proposal! It was absolutely perfect! To top it off we were wearing ugly Christmas sweaters for our photo, such a fun unexpected time. Our big day is one year to the day of getting engaged December 2, 2017. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with this amazing man!!!
