How We Met
I met Nick after his best friend called him and said, “I just met your wife.” He called me one day and asked to hang out… I denied the random request from this stranger but he insisted. So I told him I didn’t want to hang out but I did need to borrow a mop. He laughed and said okay. So he brought me a mop. And that’s how we met.
How They Asked
It was the biggest surprise of my life. We went to Florida because Nick “won a work trip” (he has won them before so didn’t think anything of it). When we arrived we rode bikes & had a perfect beach day. He told me to get ready for dinner & me being me, I didn’t & went to dinner w sopping wet hair, not a drop of makeup but threw a dress on. After dinner, we headed back home, walking the beach as the sun was setting in front of us & over & over I kept saying how amazing the day was & how I truly felt the presence of the Lord (thinking it was bc the ocean).
Little did I know, God just wanted to be a part of our proposal day :) Nick started telling me what he was most excited about in our marriage & got teary-eyed telling me (I STILL thought NOTHING besides “wow he loves me a lot”🤪) Until he said, “isn’t it crazy that 4 years ago I was just walking to bring you a mop and meet you for the first time & now I’m walking to ask you the most important question of my life…With tears running down his face he steps onto a blanket w flowers all over it, reaches his hands out & says, “come here”.
Then I basically blacked out but he asked me to marry him & apparently I said yes & screamed a lot😂THEN out comes running both of our families (who lied so much, are so sneaky & I was completely shocked !) I proceeded to sob. He put so much thought and detail & pulled off the biggest best surprise of my life.
We later figured out that without planning or knowing it, Nick proposed on the exact day we met, 4 years later. God has been in every step of our relationship & has gone so far before us & writes the best love stories. We love because He first loved us.
