Ashlee and Eric

How We Met: Eric & I met in the 7th grade at Prospect Ave School in Santee, CA. After 8th grade graduation we had lost contact & went to different High Schools. In September of 2009 (beginning of Senior Year) I was admitted into the hospital for 10 days after being incredibly sick for over a month. I was discharged on September 30, 2009. When I was getting wheeled out of the hospital by a nurse I looked towards the pharmacy and I saw Eric (he didn’t see me), later that night I found him on Facebook & I sent him a message. We talked for 2 months & went on our first date together on December 5, 2009. I asked him to my High School Prom in May of 2010 & he asked me to his Prom in June of 2010. After his prom he dropped me off at my house & he asked me if I would be his girlfriend.

How He Asked: On Wednesday September 24, 2014 Eric sent me a text telling me that he has a date planned for us & to be ready by 6pm. Eric surprised me by taking me to one of our favorite spots in San Diego, Mt. Helix! We watched the sunset while sitting by the big white cross. Once the sun was down he asked me if we could go sit by the rock amphitheater behind the cross. He started to tell me how much he loves me, and how blessed he is to have me in his life. As he was hugging me he handed me a hand written note with my full name on the front. When I was reading his note he dropped down to one knee with a beautiful ring in his hand and asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. Crying, smiling, & shaking I said “YES”!

The doctors never figured out what was wrong with me, & still to this day I haven’t had any of the symptoms that I was having in September of 2009. We believe that it was God’s plan for us to meet again & we are so blessed!

June 27, 2015 is the day that we became Mr & Mrs!
