Sydney and Sam

Sydney and Sam's Engagement in At our house warming party

How We Met

Sam and I started dating nine years ago when I was 13 and he was 14. I’ve known for years that I wanted to marry Sam and be with him for the rest of my life but I had a few personal things to get out of the way first, with one of those things being college. Sam and I graduated from Salisbury University in May 2016. After college, we started working full time. The plan was to save money and buy a house together in the Spring time of 2017, however we got a little antsy. Sam and I bought our first home together on October 31, 2016. The house we bought needed a lot of work so we spent the next three months remodeling. One of our projects being the mailbox – we needed a new one and I kept giving Sam a hard time because all of the mailboxes we saw had the street number and name, along with the last name of the residence. I kept joking with Sam, “well I guess we can’t get a new mailbox since we don’t have the same last name yet”.

how they asked

On February 4, 2017 Sam and I were settled into our new remodeled home and hosted a house warming party. I thought that we were simply going to take a minute to thank our family and friends for helping us with the house but to my surprise, Sam had a sign made that read “The Myers” and got down on one knee!
