Leigh and Cody
How We Met
Cody and I met in 2008 when we were only in middle school. Two years later, he asked me to be his girlfriend. We went to separate high schools and colleges, but we loved each other enough to make it work. Finally after being separated for majority of our relationship, we moved back home and were able to see each other on a daily basis. Cody now works for FEMA in Alexandria, and I am a third grade teacher.
How He Asked
Cody asked me to be his girlfriend 7 years ago at our community baseball complex. Watching him play ball was my favorite thing to do, so it was the perfect spot! On our 7 year anniversary, he took me back to the same complex and walked me around the bases of one of the fields.
At each base, there was a small gift bag with gifts that were significant to the both of us that explain our journey thus far. He also gave me a baseball at each base. When we made it to home plate, he presented the last baseball which then completed the sentence – “Will you marry me?” He dropped to one knee and asked me to be his wife. It was the perfect proposal!
