How We Met
Garrett and I have known each other for over two years. Garrett moved from Eau Claire, WI about 5 years ago to Florence, WI and we met through mutual friends. He was actually my next door neighbor for the past two years and I was the girl next door! This past summer Garrett messaged me asking if I was going to be at the fair and if so, he wanted to meet up and hang out. We hit it off just like that! Shortly after, Garrett was my date for a friends wedding and we started dating. We have been together ever since!
How They Asked
Garrett proposed on December 23rd at my family’s Christmas party. I did have an idea about the proposal would be coming but did not think it would happen that day! Garrett’s plan all along was to open presents together and the one present contained jewelry cleaner and a box (which he thought I would think was a ring), which was actually a pair of beautiful earrings. Unfortunately, his plan did not work out exactly as he thought so by the end of the party, he finally decided to pop the question. I was playing cribbage (of all things) with my parents and cousin. He couldn’t wait any longer so he interrupted the game and began to tell me how he felt about me. His lip started quivering and I could tell her was nervous! He asked me to marry him and of course I said YES! I didn’t believe it at first so I had to ask him if he was serious!
