How We Met

I wasn’t looking for anything, but when I saw him in a crowd I thought he was the most attractive man I’d ever seen. I never thought I’d see him again but hours later he was walking right in front of me. My friend @lobail11 made me write my name and number on a post-it note and chased him down to hand it to him. Even though he never saw me, he texted me that night, we went on a date about a week later and my life was forever changed.

How They Asked

Grant said he had lost the post-it I gave him the night I first saw him. Little did I know he had saved it for years because he knew he was going to use it to ask me to marry him. He surprised me with flights to Miami for “my birthday” weekend. The proposal didn’t go as he planned as it was downpouring the entire day. On our balcony overlooking the south beach, he gave me my birthday present. As I opened it to reveal the post-it from years prior with my number on it, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was the most romantic thing I could have imagined.
