How We Met
Peter and I met through mutual school friends one lunchtime, we were 17 and 18 and at different schools but we quickly got to know each other and became friends. Fast forward a few months we had gotten to know each other a little better but we were about to be apart for the full summer whilst I went to family in Australia and Peter went on a rugby tour to South Africa… Neither of us were too sure what would happen and both of us were too scared to ask! Then on the 6th June 2009 Peter asked me to be his girlfriend in our favourite place to walk and the rest is history!
how they asked
Seven years later and Peter had suggested we celebrate our 7 years by heading out for dinner the weekend before… I probably should have thought something was up but instead I spent the weekend incredibly sick – Peter looked after me all weekend and I joked that I was surprised he’d came back. I didn’t suspect anything was up when he suggested we take our dog (And my entire world – crazy dog lady alert) Puddles out for a walk on the Monday evening. We went to our usual spot for a short walk, and after returning from the bin I found puddles wearing a tshirt.
I started reading it as peter dropped to one knee to ask me to be his wife… 7 years exactly in the same place after he’d asked me to be his girlfriend! (Ps Puddles’ tshirt said Sarah will you marry me, Puddles says we should)
