How We Met

Ben and I met at cross country practice back in high school. We weren’t close friends but I always thought he was pretty cute. Fast forward to a year after I graduated college, and Ben showed up to my house for a birthday party of a mutual friend. When he left the party I told my housemates, “gosh, that Ben Deal is hot.” I asked him to carpool to another high school friend’s wedding in June. By August apparently Ben had texted his friends “mark my words, I’m going to marry this girl.”

how they asked

Ben was working at a summer camp in Maine, and I took two weeks off to come hang out on the beautiful island. His mom sent me with a care package for Ben and his sister who was also working up in Maine. Little did I know I was the mule for his grandmothers gorgeous engagement ring!
