Amanda and Daniel
How We Met
Dan and I ran in the same social circles in high school. We had heard about one another, but never really “knew” each other until our first years of college. We “officially met” at a friends birthday party and hit it off. At the time we met, Dan was in the process of transferring back to our local college where we conveniently ended up in the same class together. We quickly fell for each other over our mutual love for outdoor adventures, craft beer, and good music, along with a few mutual dislikes!
How he asked
Dan and I talked about marriage early on in our relationship, but I (im)patiently waited nine years for him to pop the question. We had a house, a cat, and an extensive shared record collection so it was only a matter of time before he asked! I knew it was coming, I just didn’t know when or where. While vacationing in Key West with two of our closest friends, Dan suggested we head to the beach to watch the sunset before going to dinner.
While I was running (at full speed) towards the ocean, Dan softly called my name while grabbing my hand. Completely oblivious, I tried to keep running while pulling him by the arm and yelling “Let’s feel the water!”, but he wasn’t budging. That’s when I turned around and he was on one knee. I was floored and couldn’t believe it was finally happening.
