Alexa and CJ
How We Met
Your going to laugh when I tell you how CJ and I met. I know it’s cliche and so not how I expected to meet my future husband…. Well, we met on Facebook. Don’t laugh. It was 2013 at the time. A lot of people meet on social media. On December 19, 2013, CJ messaged me on Facebook, almost one week after I had graduated with a Bachelor of Accountancy from Mississippi State University. After a few conversations were exchanged, we decided to go on a double date with one of his friends, Michael and Christy. I knew so early on that I was in love. The only thing that could come in between CJ and I was the commitment I had made with a job out in Houston, Texas. I was moving to Texas right after Christmas to work for one of The Big Four Accounting Firms in the world. I had an opportunity of a lifetime and there was no way I could turn it down.
How He Asked
On Christmas Day of 2017, CJ and I spent the day at his parents. We had been dating 4 years this month. Once we arrived home, he asked that I let our two dogs inside. I was thinking to myself “Well, you’re there by the door, why don’t you let them in?”. I was tired from traveling to and from his parents. We had been to a few Chrismtas gatherings the past few days. We have a lab named Drake and a German Short-Haired Pointer named Susie. I go to open the door to let them in and I see that they are wearing shirts that say “Will you marry my Daddy?”. I just starred at them for a few seconds. I had been waiting for that moment for so long. Once I read the shirts, I turned to CJ and he was on one knee asking me to be his wife forever.
