How We Met

Our love story is anything but typical! In December 2016, I decided that I would give e-harmony a try after being single for about 3 years. Well after being on e-harmony for a month, I was matched with Cory. There was an instant connection, especially since we had a lot in common! It’s crazy to think that he was literally in the exact same places as me for 3 years on more than one occasion (concerts, charity events you name it), but because of a dating site we finally got together. Anyways after about a week or two of constant text messages, we scheduled our first date! Now I am usually one to set up the date in a public place and not get into the total stranger’s car, but something was different about him. He came to my house and picked me up and started driving the end destination ended up being Disneyland! (We are both pass holders). He was so sweet and we just walked around rode some rides and had so much fun and I could tell right then and there that he was different and special!

how they asked

We took a family trip to Disney World with his Mom, brother, sister and then the two of us. Kasey (sister), Cory and I had been training the last 8 months for the Dopey challenge at Disney world running a 5k,10k,1/2 and full marathon in 4 days, crazy! Well, the day before the races started and 3 days before our 1 year anniversary we were in Epcot having just finished dinner and we’re walking around the Germany pavilion. Cory and his brother excused themselves to go to the bathroom while the rest of us waited by the water.

His mom said that we should take some pictures when they came back so typical family selfie, girl photo, guy photo and then the couple. We took our photo and I started walking away when he grabbed my hand and stopped me. When I turned around he pulled me close and had tears in his eyes and I asked him if he was being crazy! And he responded with I’m being crazy and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and of course, I said Yes!
