How We Met

We met in eighth grade at our middle school. It was our school’s last week of school where we participated in different fun activities each day. On this particular day, we made kites and then went outside to fly them. I was flying my kite and decided I wanted to take a picture of it but didn’t have my phone. He was standing beside me so I asked him to take a picture of it then send it to me. So he did, and after he sent it to me we texted ever since. About 2 months later he asked me to be his girlfriend and now we have been dating almost 6 years.

How They Asked

It was my birthday and both families were meeting up to tour this wedding venue that I had seen and loved. We had already talked about getting married so we were venue hunting but I had no idea when he was going to propose. We were walking around the reception area when the song “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran comes on. I turned to him and said “oh my gosh this is our song” because I have always said I wanted that to be our first dance song.

As the song continues I continue walking the area and when I turn around he was down on one knee asking me to marry him. It was the best moment of my life.
