Kellie and Michael
How We Met: Michael and I both attended school at Lee University. He was a big brother for Sigma Nu Sigma, a sorority at our school. I was interviewing to be a part of Sigma during my freshman year, and he interviewed me at the big brother station.
He asked me which big brother I would want to take to a deserted island, and I chose him! Little did I know, I would be spending the rest of my life with this man!
How He Asked: May 8, 2015 was my commissioning service for graduation. After the service, Michael told me he wanted to give me a gift. He blindfolded me in a yellow bandana and walked me into an empty room at the Music Building.
When I took off my bandana, he told me it was yellow because I wore a yellow scarf during Sigma interviews, and the room we were in was where interviews took place; where we first met. He proceeded to tell me how much he loved me and apologized he couldn’t buy me what I wanted; a ring.
He went on a rant about how he sold his PS3 to buy me something special. He gave me a gold heart necklace, which I later found out was from Walmart. Disappointed, we left and started walking back to the car.
On our way, he stopped in front of my freshman dorm. I reminded him that this was where he asked me to be his girlfriend and also first told me he loved me. He then got down on one knee and told me this was where he was going to ask me to marry him as well.
I bawled like a baby, knocked the ring box out of his hand (accidentally of course), and said yes!
