How We Met
The first time we met I was walking to class and saw a friend walking with Tommy in the same direction. We chatted for a bit then went our separate ways. I saw them again 2 days later and tried -and failed- to flirt with Tommy. “I bet you don’t even remember my name”, I said. He replied, “actually I do, MARA. Do you remember mine?” With wayyyy too much confidence I blurted “yeah, it’s TYLER!” 🤦🏾♀️ Somehow, he didn’t think I was a complete idiot and we started hanging out after that. The rest is history :)
How They Asked
I had been decorating our apartment with pictures and Tommy suggested my mom take more recent pictures of us during our visit to Atlanta since she’s a photographer. While taking pictures, my mom stopped to “fix my hair”. When she finished, I turned around to him on one knee and a beautiful ring in his hands. The easiest “yes” I’ve ever said.
