How We Met

” October 20,2008 two people walked into a room and their lives changed forever.” My mom used to work at an Elementary School I volunteered with her everyday after school. On Monday October 20th I was running a bit late because I was suppose to go to tennies try outs but decided not to so I went to my moms job instead. As I’m walking into the hallway I see my moms friend walking with a tall guy going into my moms classroom. That’s the day I met the love of my life, my mom introduced me to him and ever since we have been inseparable.

How He Asked

It was a beautiful day, we started our Saturday morning shopping. After a couple of hours he said he had to go run some errands and he would pick me up later to have dinner with his parents ( which was already planned). He picked me up for dinner on our way to the restaurant his mom calls saying they are running late, instead of waiting at the restaurant he said let’s go somewhere we haven’t been in a while.  We went to signal hill, as we were walking he held my hand a little tighter. I see rose pedals one the ground but didn’t think anything of it. As we get closer to “our bench” ( it’s were he gave me my promise ring years before) there are roses and he hands them to me. Next thing I know, he’s on one knee and saids ” Babe, will you marry me?” After shedding a bunch of tears and said YES!
