Julia and Tom
How We Met
On January 1st, 2014 I was headed to London to study abroad, and Tom, who had spent time with some family here in America, was flying back home to London. We sat next to each other on the plane from Boston to London, and spent a lot of the time talking! As we landed in London Tom asked me if I had a phone number, which I hadn’t yet set up in London, so we left only knowing each other’s first names, but he had given me his band’s CD.
After using my amazing detective skills using his band’s CD I was able to find him on Facebook and messaged him. From then we went on amazing dates in London and traveled around England for the next 6 months. Leaving London was one of the hardest things, as he lived there, but we decided to continue our relationship long distance. Our relationship never wavered despite the distance, and the rest is history!
How He Asked
Saint John is a very special place for my family and I. Back in January 2015 my family (my mom, dad, sister, and brother-in law) and Tom all went for 1 week, and Tom fell in love with the island. We returned January 2016 for 2 weeks. On our second day on the Island we spent the day on our favorite beach Cinnamon Bay Beach. Towards the end of the day as the beach had cleared out Tom asked me to go on a walk down the beach. As we walked he veered off to a more secluded area, where he ended up proposing. I don’t remember exactly what he said, because I was in such shock but I do remember he said “you make me happy every day and I want to make you happy for the rest of our lives”.
