How We Met

My fiancé and I met in high school in marching band. We dated for a few years before life happened, and we went our separate ways. With mostly his efforts, we got back together in our college years!

How He Asked

We grew up near the ocean and have recently moved away, but we both miss it immensely ! We visit family every year for Christmas and visit the ocean while we are in town. Two years ago, on Christmas morning, we were staring out at the ocean and he pretended to see a boat. While I was searching for the nonexistent boat, he had gotten down on his knee with a ring. This was not just any ring, it was my grandmothers diamond reset in a beautiful new setting he picked out. I was unaware that months prior, my mother had given him my late grandmothers ring to reset. Needless to say, I cried and said yes! The perfect timing allowed us to tell all of our family in person on Christmas, instead of over the phone. That meant so much to me. It was perfect!
