Erica and Chris
How We Met
Chris and I met in Florida while we were juniors in high school. He just moved there from Virginia and I just moved there from Connecticut so we were both brand new. We had the same math class together and I thought he was the best thing I’ve ever laid eyes on. As time went on, me Chris and our friend Sam started hanging out every weekend, we were inseparable. There was one night it was just him and I at his house and he asked me to be his girlfriend. That was March 23, 2014. That’s was by far the best thing that has ever happened to me. I thought nothing was ever going to split us up until I went through some difficult times with my family and was told I had to move back to Connecticut. I stayed there for the summer until Chris called me and told me his dad wanted to buy me a plane ticket back to Florida to live with them. From there on out, we have been facing this crazy life together.
How He Asked
Chris and I were going on 4 years this past March 23rd. We have been living apart for a couple of months due to college so we wanted to do something that would be fun for spring break. We took a trip to Mexico for a week.
For the past couple of months, we’ve been talking about getting engaged but agreed that we should wait until we can live together. Our first night in Mexico we all went to a really nice dinner on the beach. As we were walking on the beach, I turned around and he was on one knee. It was the perfect time because there was the sunset right behind us. It was the best day of my life.
