How We Met
We met in college through mutual friends. We went to rival colleges & always had the best time talking trash to each other on football game weekends.
How They Asked
I got off my night shift at the hospital, & was just about to fall asleep when my boyfriend started insisting we needed to go on a date downtown. I was confused, but have always loved his spontaneous side, so I agreed. He was waiting in the car honking at me to hurry up while I threw on some jeans & mascara. He proceeded to drive past every restaurant suggestion I made until we got to a quiet little square downtown. He started walking slowly, & before I knew it he was down on one knee. He told me he had made the 8-hour round trip to ask my parents the day before, & ever since, he hadn’t been able to contain his excitement to ask me. He apologized that my ring hadn’t come in yet, but he realized when he saw me that morning, there was no way he could wait one more second ❤️ we got some yummy food-to-go at a local coffee shop & spent the rest of the afternoon reminiscing & calling each other fiancé/fiancée an absurd number of times.
