how we met
It was November 23rd 2013. I was in Richmond (where I used to go to school at VCU) for a friends birthday. On my way to the bday party which was at off the hookah downtown, my other friend texted who was already there saying that she wanted me to meet a guy. When I arrived I was introduced to troy. At the end of the night we all ended up going to diner to grab some food and realized we were both from northern VA. He was living in Richmond at that time going to school. We exchanged numbers that night and kept in touch for the coming months. After becoming close throughout the summer we both realized that we were meant for each other.
how they asked
Troy told me ahead of time to not make plans for that Friday as I am notorious for always Making plans. He picked me up after work and we had a nice dinner at Takoda Restaurant and Beer Garden in DC. After dinner, Troy really wanted to stop by the Lincoln Memorial before we headed home. While standing on the steps watching the night view Troy got down on one knee and proposed.
