How We Met
Michael and I met in college, where we had some mutual friends that always studied together. Having known him from a solely academic light, I had the opportunity to actually introduce myself on the beach over spring break. On our first night together we went out with friends initially but the rest of the night turned into our own little adventure with giant Jenga, rock climbing, and dancing the night away!
How They Asked
We have been dating for almost four years, three of those years being post-college where we moved to Washington, DC together. On our first trip back to our college hometown of Raleigh, NC with our new puppy we went on a walk at my favorite spot in the city called Lake Johnson. This lake we spent time together years prior running together and having meaningful conversations.
To my surprise, Michael had an entire weekend planned after he proposed on the dock at the lake. My entire family drove down the East coast to celebrate, and we had an engagement party at our close friend’s home right in the area. It was the perfect reunion with loved ones and celebrating a pivotal moment!
