Danica and Sean
How We Met
Sean and I met in junior high when I was in 8th grade and he was in 7th. We decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend when we hardly even knew each other. I don’t think anyone thought our relationship would last. We were just kids. I never thought my first real boyfriend would end up being not only my first love, but my only love. From age 13 to 25, we’ve been through everything together.
How He Asked
Sean and I bought our first house together last year. We decided to make it a tradition to get each other a special ornament for our Christmas tree to add to our collection each year. We would exchange them on Christmas Eve. When December 24th came around we were about to head to a family party when I heard Sean put on my favorite Frank Sinatra Christmas album on our record player. He told me to come downstairs to do ornaments before we go. I gave him mine first. Then he handed me one in a box. I opened it and saw a glass ornament filled with strips of paper that said “will you marry me?” He got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. After 12 years together, we are finally getting married this Summer!
