How We Met
Brent and I met in our High School cafeteria. Like so many small town stories, he was a senior football player, and I was a sophomore cheerleader. One day, I had the bright idea to steal his usual lunch seat to strike up a conversation, and here we are nearly 7 years later, engaged!
how they asked
My sweet fiancé, Brent, and I have been together nearly 7 years. We’ve been through many milestones from High School graduations onward. As I reach closer to another, graduation with my RN-BSN in May, I had a feeling our relationship would soon evolve, although I didn’t know when or how! On Easter Sunday, my family travelled to my Mom’s parents’ home to celebrate with lunch, as we always do. However, through the hour-long drive, I had no idea what my dad held in his pocket or what was going through Brent’s mind. While visiting with my grandparents, my PawPaw asks me when my ring (that was given to me by my now-fiancé 3 years before) would change hands from right to left. I responded, “I don’t know; that’s up to him,” and when I turned to look at Brent, he was down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I’d ever seen. After a few seconds of shock, he finally spoke and asked me to be his wife! Of course, I said YES!
