How We Met

Kevin and I met my junior year of high school, back in 2011. He was incredibly funny and goofy, and I immediately felt an attraction to him. Things didn’t manifest into anything serious for a few months after meeting. Eventually we both found our way to the military. Kevin enlisted in the Navy in January of 2015, and I enlisted in the Air Force in June of 2015.

How He Asked

Kevin asked in a way that he described as “unconventional, just like us”. I was in the bathroom of our hotel room getting ready for our anniversary dinner when he came up behind me and just started talking about how much he loves and cares for me. Then he pulled the ring out, basically on top of my head and told me he thought he found something at the store today that I would like. I didn’t even give him a chance to ask the question! I was immediately in tears, blubbering the word “yes!” Over and over.
