How We Met
We met at a church we were both attending. He was a musician & I was apart of the choir so we would see each other frequently in passing. One Sunday when service was over I decided to wave bye to him. He smiled & waved back. Then the next thing I know he sent me a dm & we started to chat. We went on our first date a few days later & have been together every single day every since.
How They Asked
June 17, 2020, Anthony & I Were Heading Out To The Park For Our First Post-Quarantine Date. He Had Already Ordered Take Out & Was Surprising Me With A Picnic By The Lake. We Walk To Our Spot & Was Getting Settled When A Woman Approached Us & Stated That Herself & Her Partner Were Taking Random Pictures At The Park & Asked If They Could Take Our Picture To Be Featured In A Local Catalog. I Was Looking Cute So I Agree!
They Took A Few Shots Of Us & Then Asked If We Could Walk Down The Dock To Get A View Of The Lake. Once We Were There She Instructed Us To Face Each Other & Hold Hands. While Starring Into My Eyes, Anthony Began To Recite Things We Had Been Through In Our Relationship & Profess His Love For Me. At That Moment, I Knew What Was Happening & The Tears Began To Fall.
Next Thing I Know He Was Down On One Knee & Holding Up The Most Beautiful Ring I’d Ever Seen. I Said Yes, He Placed It On My Finger, We Embraced Each Other While I Sobbed Like A Baby. Even Though I Don’t Remember A Word He Said Before He Kneeled, This Day, This Moment, & This Time Is Forever Etched In My Heart.
