Gabraelle and Eric
How We Met
Eric and I have known each other since high school. We were good friends senior year but I never had the guts to tell him I liked him. The summer before college, Eric and I both went on a mission trip. We flirted all week and finally, at the end of the week, I told Eric I had feelings for him. We’ve been inseparable since.
How He Asked
Eric and I started dating the summer before we left for college. Eric was headed to be a Spartan at Michigan State University and I was staying in our home town of Hastings. The first time I visited Eric at MSU, he took me to this beautiful tower on campus. He said that the myth is that you’re not a true Spartan until you kiss someone under the Beaumont Tower. Myth also has it that whomever you kiss under the tower you’ll also marry. 6 years later Eric took me back to that exact spot where he had kissed me freshman year of college and asked me to be his wife!
