How We Met
Eric and I met in high school and never really considered each other as anything more than friends. We reconnected my freshman year of college for ice cream and after two hours of talking and laughing I knew something had changed. There was a very palpable spark between us and that was not a feeling I had ever had before. Luckily, Eric felt the same. Over the next few year he became my support system, my motivator, and my very best friend. Before long I knew he was the man I wanted to spend my life with. I am a professional dancer and Eric is a baseball player, so our passions took us to many different cities over the next three years. Although the miles between us changed and shifted, our love for each other never did.
how they asked
For Christmas Eric surprised me with a plane ticket to San Francisco and I was shocked! Eric grew up in San Francisco and I was so excited to travel to such a special place with him. Three days later we flew to one of the most romantic cities in the world. We spent the next two days exploring the city, tasting wine, and taking in the beautiful sights of the Bay area. On our last night, Eric told me he was taking me to dinner and that our destination was a surprise. We arrived at a restaurant on the water overlooking the entire skyline of San Francisco. After an amazing meal, we walked out onto the balcony and Eric began to tell me how much he loved me. All of a sudden, my heart started to pound and I knew what was about to happen next. He got down on his knee, asked me to be his wife, and I said YES! Afterwards we drove to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge to really take in the moment. Without a doubt San Francisco will be a special part of our lives forever.
