Emily and Nick
How We Met
Nick and I met when we were little kids. His cousins lived in my neighborhood and we were best friends. I remember when we would play soccer in the backyard and I would get so mad at him because he wouldn’t take his shoes off. As we got in middle school I started to have a crush on him and we eventually became best friends.
Our freshman year of high school he dated ok of my best friends, but when they broke up him and I kissed one night. We didn’t get together because I didn’t want to be an even worse friend. The next year nick and I remained best friends but the feelings seemed different than before. My friend who had previously dated him encouraged me to go for it. On November 20, 2009 we saw Twilight at midnight and that day we “officially” became a couple.
How He Asked
Disney has been a major part of nick and my life. We are part of the vacation club and go multiple times a year. This Christmas we went with his sisters and some of his cousins. Since we go so often we know all the cameras and try to do in my poses. This time we were getting on Splash Mountain and planned to do a sleeping pose. When we got off the ride we all run to look at the picture. To my surprise I am the only one sleeping.
I turn around and Nick is on his knee and asks me to marry him. I had never been so happy and shocked. Nick and his family had been carrying the ring in their bags all day and were so nervous that I would see. Everything was so perfect and most magical engagement I could have picked for us.
