Kayla and Tony

How We Met

Tony is from small town Central Illinois and I am from big city San Diego. We both got accepted into graduate programs at Texas Tech University. The day his mother and step father dropped is stuff off at his new apartment he met his college friend at one of the local hot spots in our new town. That friend happened to be my first friend in Lubbock, Texas. He looked at me, bought me a margarita and I was hooked. We talked all night and I beat him at giant connect four. It was one of the best nights of my life.

How He Asked

We both were graduating with our Master’s degrees this weekend and both of our families were coming into town. Little did I know my family was flying in my best friend for the weekend also. So to my surprise all my favorite people were in one place. The day after graduation Tony wanted to take family pictures. He hired a photographer, got all dressed up and walked around campus to all of our favorite spots. Our last stop was my favorite place on campus and the place where we had our first kiss. Kayla (my best friend) came over to fix my hair and when I turned back, my love was on one knee asking me to be his wife. I had no idea and burst into tears, not able to say YES fast enough.
