How We Met

We have been dating since we were 13, now we’re 22. We have a running joke that we’re not high school sweethearts, but middle school sweethearts.

how they asked

On our 9 year anniversary, we decide to ditch our plans to have a nice dinner and do a couples photography session and took a spur of the moment trip to Asheville. We arrive at the Haywood Park Hotel and our room is beautiful with a view of downtown and miles of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We sit on the couch and are talking about our plans for the evening when I look at Dustin and say, “I am so happy right now. The only thing to make this moment better would be if we were engaged. I don’t need anything or anyone but you.” That’s when he looks at me and gets down on one knee. I’m pretty sure I said yes before his knee touched the floor! Happy 9 years to us!
