How We Met

He was sitting alone at a table listening to a band. Me and my girlfriends met for drinks after work. He had the table to himself they asked if we could sit at end of his table. So as night went along we all started talking and next thing you know it’s time to leave and we exchanged phone numbers. We have been together ever since a total of 9 1/2 years.

How They Asked

We went to Nashville,TN for what I thought was just a getaway because we hadn’t been on vacation due to Covid and it was close to my birthday. So I go assuming it’s just vacation. All along he had planned this. He called both my daughters and asked for their blessing. Then called my mom to for her blessing. Of course she told him no at first jokingly. We were just going out for drinks and he suggested that we take a walk up the Pedestrian Bridge. Me being clueless and taking my time enjoying the beautiful views and stopping to take pictures along the way up. I reached the top minutes after he had made it to top. He ask family that was taking pictures (unbeknownst to me) to take a video and told them that they would understand why he was requesting a video. He turned to me with tears in his eyes (which I will never forget) and said after 9 1/2 years and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Speechless, crying and in complete shock I said Yes! A day I’ll never forget!
