How We Met
Michael and I met at a Raising Cane’s when I was 16 on the last day of school. It’s funny, I was actually kinda dating one of his best friends and he was kinda dating one of mine. We went on a few double dates but things didn’t work out with either end. Michael was special though and we began to talk and a few months later started to date. He’s actually my first boyfriend, but when you know you know. We’ve been together for 7 years.
How They Asked
On September 6th, Michael proposed and I quite literally, fell over in shock. We had been talking about getting engaged for a while and there were so many signs that he was going to do it that day, but I thought it had to be too good to be true and I was hyping myself up over nothing.
We went to Paint Mines in Colorado with my sister, her boyfriend, and Michael’s cousin. We found this cool cave where the sunlight was shining through a few rocks. He wanted to take a photo that isn’t unlike him, but when I thought we were done, I turned around to find him on one knee.
I immediately freaked out and fell to the ground with shock. He grabbed me and said “what are you doing? get up!!” I was so shocked and flooded with emotions, I don’t even remember what else he said. I obviously said yes though!
The rest of our time at Paint Mines, I kept yelling “wow.” I was beyond surprised. I can’t wait to marry my best friend! High school sweethearts DO work out. ;)
