Leanna and Jeric


How We Met

Jeric and I met in high school. I was in grade 11 and he was in grade 12. I had the biggest high school girl crush on him but he didn’t know I existed. A mutual friend had a party and their house and both Jeric and I came. We got to talking and he knew right away, I was head over heels. He was hard to figure out, I wasn’t sure if he was interested in me at all. After a week went by, I added him on MSN (haha!) and we got to talking. Eventually we exchanged phone numbers and met up at the McDonald’s in our area. We ordered ice cream cones and talked. After a month, we made it official, October 30th, 2007.

how they asked

The morning of the proposal, Jeric made me breakfast in bed. He brought over a tray with fresh fruits, apple juice (my favorite) and cereal :). He sat at the edge of the bed and began his speech about me and spoke about the endless things I do to take care of him and our baby (puppy haha!) He highlighted all of the things he loves about me and gave me endless thanks for all I do, then the magic words came.. “Kilo, show Mama the message”. Kilo walked into our room wearing this sign. I immidiately bursted into tears (and so did Jeric!), this worried my puppy so he was all over me. Once  I had a moment to wipe my tears and look up, my beautiful ring was in his hands, and of course I said YES! Then we jetted off to Dominican to celebrate our anniversary and engagement!
