Allyson and Cory

Allyson and Cory's Engagement in At a lake house

How We Met

We actually met in 2012. We went to the same high school together. We first locked eyes in the hallway, which soon lead to him asking me to sit at his lunch table. Young highschool love, right? The school was about to let out for summer when he finally got the guts to ask for my number. That same night, I get a text asking when he was going to see me again. The next day, we met up at the park and ever since then we clicked. We hung out every single day the summer of 2012 and instantly became best friends. I never expected anything more than that honestly. He was my go-to person. He knew me like the back of his hand. For 6 months we were inseparable, we were honestly connected at the hip. We had everyone thinking we were a couple, but in reality, we were two really close friends who knew every little secret and detail of each other. The Christmas in 2012 came around and I was bugging him what he wanted for Christmas. On December 22nd he finally sat me down and told me, “Ally you know what I want for Christmas? You” and from that moment, I knew these “best friends” feelings were much more than that. I was scared, I was told that it would completely ruin the bond and relationship as best friends if we started to date. I knew from day one we had something special, I just never knew it was this special. Finally, in March of 2013, Cory stopped by at my house one day while I was sick, brought flowers, medicine and a balloon that spelled out “be mine?” Of course, I said yes. And now 5 years later, I am still loving everything about this man.

How He Asked

On July 22nd, 2017 – four and a half years into dating , Cory stopped by and asked if I wanted to go to a lake that was near by I loved going there to takes walks around the lake He told me to bring my dog with me too and walk her with us As we go, Cory starts talking about how much he loved me, but I didn’t think anything of it because he always has been the sweet one He bent down to pick up my dog, and as I turn around I see him getting down on one knee with our dog in his arms I look closer and I see a gorgoeus engagement ring tied around our dogs collar Tears started falling immediately and I was at lost for words, but I managed to scream out “YES” for the entire world to hear
