How We Met
Tony and I met in college through a couple of mutual friends. We really hit it off on Halloween when I was dressed as a football player and he was a ghostbuster! We went out, danced, and had a good time together. We didn’t start dating right away because Tony moved to Missouri after graduating. We finally decided to give this thing a chance and I ended up moving to Nebraska. Long story short, we’ve moved 7 times between the two of us and lived in 4 states. Our jobs have taken us all over and for the first time in almost 4 years, we’re together and building our lives in the same spot!
How They Asked
A few days before Christmas Tony insisted we see the Christmas lights in the college town where we met. I didn’t think too much of it, because we’ve ventured that way every year for the past few years. He had picked out a nice outfit for himself and helped me pick out something to wear for our evening. As we got within 20 minutes of the Christmas lights, we made a stop and he asked if I could drive. As I finished the drive, he was texting a photographer he had lined up and letting her know when we would arrive. When we got to the Christmas lights, we ran into the photographer and Tony introduced me to her as a classmate from college(which wasn’t true!) When he asked if she could take a picture of us, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him. I was so shocked I could hardly respond! Of course, I eventually said yes and can’t wait for our happily ever after!
