How We Met

We were in the same high school class and had mutual friends. We got close when he started driving me to school; we lived in adjacent neighborhoods and I saw him pass one day so I asked if he wanted to start riding together (which was cooler than my mom bringing me everyday).

How They Asked

We live about 2 hours from the Gulf coast and love to take spontaneous trips. One day during quarantine he said he wanted to just take a drive to the beach and get out of the house. I was reluctant to do anything but finally agreed. We planned to get takeout and picnic on the beach. Once we got close, we pulled off the road to find a place to order food and stretch our legs. I was sitting on a beach bench when I saw him walking up beside me with a tiny box in his hand. I was so shocked. He proceeded to say that he wanted to spend the rest of our lives together and asked me to be his wife. I was at a loss for words but of course said YES about 10 times and was shaking with excitement as he slid the ring on. We FaceTimed our family and friends to share the news, and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for days! It was perfect!
