How We Met
Tom and I met many years ago while he was working at an outdoor cafe in the city we both lived in. We were friends for a couple of years before we started dating in 2014.
how they asked
Ever since the beginning, I’ve been telling him how much I love my hometowns in the Midwest. I’m from Noblesville originally and now we live in California. I’ve always gushed about the childhood home that I grew up in and how I can’t wait for another trip to go back. Well, my cousin just got married this past Labor Day weekend so we were back in Indiana for a family vacay and of course I brought him along. We went to our old neighborhood to check out the house and he got on one knee!
He had actually (with my mom’s help) gotten in touch with the people who currently live there and asked if he could execute the proposal on the front porch!
My ring is still being made but he didn’t want to let anything ruin his great plan, so he proposed with his mother’s old wedding ring, a beautiful diamond setting surrounded by rows of rubies. It was so incredibly special to me and now I can’t wait to move back to Indiana, where our new chapter started!!
