Heather and James
How We Met
It all started back when I was about 15 years old…James and I were actually high school sweethearts . We dated for about 2 years and then he went into the Air Force and I went to College. Since we were so far apart we decided to break up , but throughout the next 10 years we still kept in touch and wanted to know that the other was doing well . I compared everyone I dated to him and knew the love we had at such a young age was the real deal , but I wasn’t sure if fate would bring us back together.
Luckily, we both became single again around the same time in 2015 and he had recently moved back to Alabama. We went to grab dinner and drinks together one night around Christmas and even though we hadn’t seen each other in years the spark was still there. We had an amazing time and since then, we have been inseparable. He’s my best friend and soul mate, which I have known my whole life, but I am glad we went our separate ways it gave us the time to mature and grow and now we are both ready for an ever lasting love story.
How He Asked
James asked me spend forever with him on May 13th , 2017. We took a trip to Thailand and were staying on Phi Phi island for 2 nights . From there we took a boat tour out to another island where we stopped at Maya Bay. Maya Bay is stunningly beautiful and surrounded on three sides by 100 m high cliffs . There is a small beach and enchanting clear water with lots of exotic fish to see . It was breathtaking . As we had someone taking our picture James got down on one knee and asked me to marry him .
Of course I said “Yes!” It was perfect .
