Jonathan and Britley
How We Met
We met on a hot summer night in June of 2013. I knew his cousin and was having a girls night in. We were wanting to raid the kitchen, but unfortuntely there was NOTHING. So she tells me don’t worry my cousin always comes over to hang out with my brother I’m sure he’ll bring us something to eat.
He shows up at midnight with pancakes and as soon as I laid eyes on him I knew there was something about him. He stayed up talking to me for hours, until eventually we went our separate ways. We exchanged numbers and made any excuse possible to see each other. We began dating and we had a nightly tradition of going to McDonald’s at midnight to get hotcakes and sausage and just sit up late and enjoy being together. What he didn’t know was that, he had me under his spell….I was falling for him.
How He Asked
It was the night of our four year anniversary. He told me to make sure I get dressed nice because he was taking me somewhere special. So we go to eat dinner at a new restaurant, that he knew I had been dying to try. Well once we left I thought we had to run errands for him so I was just along for the ride at that point, and kicked my shoes off.
On the ride home I put our playlist on the radio. However, he kept skipping songs and looking for one in particular…all while we are driving down the dirt road to the pond. He finds the song and he pulls up to the pond…he says Britley…LOOK. I look up and see the most beautiful sight. I instantly knew, I started crying and repeatedly saying… NO ARE YOU FOR REAL?! As I got out of the truck he handed me a picture frame with a hand written letter. I read it as I walked to the chair. Once I finished the last few words written, “Four words mean forever, so will you?” When I looked up he was on one knee and said the best four words a woman can hear. “Will you marry me?” I, of course, couldn’t stop saying YES YES and crying my eyes out.
To make this moment even more magical, he had my entire family hiding and waiting to come out. He made sure that all of my closest relatives and his family would be there to see the most amazing moment of our lives.
I can’t wait to spend my life with this amazing man, who I fall more in love with every day.
