How We Met

Ace and I were classmates in high school. We would see each other in the hallways or with mutual friends but we didn’t properly introduce ourselves until our junior year. It wasn’t until our senior year that we started to get close. We became fast friends and towards the end of year the feelings of something more began to develop. We went to prom together as “friends” but that night as we were walking along Galveston Beach, he asked me to be his girlfriend! Ever since then we’ve been inseparable.

 

How He Asked

We were on vacation in Maui for Spring Break. Before we left my dad kept telling me that he had a feeling I was going to get engaged on that following Sunday, March 6th. I honestly didn’t believe him and just laughed it off. Sunday came and we woke up early to go the beach. As we were leaving the hotel, my mom called me crying. My heart sank thinking something terrible must have happened. She soon had me crying as well because I wasn’t sure what was going on. After she calmed down, she simply confessed that she missed me. I thought that was odd since my mom isn’t normally this emotional. We arrived at Oneuli Beach and we just took a second to admire the views… and it was then that Ace asked me if we can continue to “keep things interesting” as husband and wife.
