Kayla and Bryan
How We Met
Bryan and I met through a mutual friend my freshmen year of college. He asked her for my number and I can still remember how giddy I was when he first texted me. We hung out a few more times while I was home from school and we clicked instantly. We went up to another college for a weekend of partying with friends and he asked me to be his girlfriend. Nearly two years later and we’re just as happy as ever.
How He Asked
I came home from college for winter break on a Friday. He had drill that day so I was expecting to be at his house before he got home. He asked me to stop at the store on my way there and managed to make it home before me. His car was in the driveway but the front door was locked, which was odd. I hadn’t seen him in a month and was definitely not expecting a proposal that night. When I opened the door he was right in the doorway in uniform and on one knee . He asked me to marry him and the first words out of my mouth were “are you serious?!” I said yes and cried and hugged him, throwing my phone halfway across the room in the process. We told our families, who were super happy for us, and then spent the night cuddling and being mushy as I tried to grasp how I could possibly be so lucky.
