How We Met
Me and AJ met through mutual friends, it was kind of a blind date actually. We had texted for a few days before planning our first date & when the first date finally came I was insanely nervous. We went to dinner and drinks and hit it off instantly. On our way home in the car he was playing music & put on my absolutely favorite song, Jersey Girl by Bruce Springsteen. At that moment I looked at him & knew this was where I was supposed to be.
How They Asked
The proposal was a complete surprise to me, I actually have never been so surprised in my entire life. We were on our way to my parents’ house to pick up my sister and her boyfriend for dinner (so I thought). On our way, AJ started playing Jersey Girl and asking me to remember back to our first date. He then asked me how many days I thought it had been since our first date. Since I am terrible at math (which he knows) I looked at him and said: “really, you know I can’t do that”. At that point, we had already been parked around the corner from my parent’s house and we began to walk. He proceeded to tell me that it had been 942 days since our first date. As we approached the front steps my GoldenDoodle puppy, Rocco, came racing out of the house with the ring around his collar. AJ got down on one knee and asked me if I wanted to make it “942 days and the rest of eternity”. Once all the freaking out had stopped and the ring was put on my finger I walked into my parent’s house to be greeted by our friends and family. The proposal was the best day of my life & I cannot wait to see what other surprises the future has in store for us.
