Cheryl and Stirling
How We Met
Stirling and I first met in December of 2014. He was out celebrating a friends birthday and i was out with a friend celebrating the weekend. We ran into them and my friend Paris introduced Stirling and I. He was the sweetest, most outgoing, and funniest guy I had ever met. We ended up dancing the whole night away! A few days later, Stirling got my number and we started talking. After talking for a few weeks he invited me to a super bowl party! Knowing i was a huge Seahawks fan, he knew i would love it! I had such butterflies. Being a little shy, Paris agreed she would drive me there and make me feel comfortable because i didn’t know anyone at the party, except for Stirling. After arriving, the rest was history! I couldn’t have picked a better way and a better person to spend a Seahawks loss with. He made me feel so comfortable! As we mourned the loss of our favorite football team we also shared many stories and our love started to grow; i think that is where we both realized we had such a strong connection. A few weeks later, Stirling asked me to be his girlfriend. I said yes, of course. Little did i know, a year and a half down the road he would be on one knee asking me to be his wife.
How He Asked
On July 2nd, 2016, Stirling was waiting for me at the end of my grandparents dock. With my family and close friends there as witnesses, i walked down the dock in complete shock!
He got on one knee, opened up a little black box, and asked me if i would spend a lifetime with him! I said YES!
It was so romantic and special! I could not have planned my own proposal any better. It was beyond my wildest dreams!
