How We Met

We met in high school. I was in 10th grade and he was in 11th grade. We were in a Culinary class together and both of us were assigned to wash dishes together.

How They Asked

We were approaching our 7th dating anniversary. The night before, he had been very fidgety and ended up sleeping on the couch because he was nervous. I woke up to a sign on our bedroom TV that said: “your ride will be here by 10, wake up and get ready”. Instantly I started crying because I just knew. I got ready, and my little sister picked me up and made me wear a blindfold.

She drove me to a local park (Chestnut Ridge) where Trevor and I have spent so much time together over the years. He opened the car door for me, took my blindfold off, and walked me to a spot we used to picnic at as kids. He gave me his whole speech and we both cried! I, of course, said YES.
