Liz and Justin
How We Met: We met in 8th grade. We were with a group of friends, and decided to spend the day at the beach (the beach he proposed). I remember seeing his eyes for the first time thinking “how could someone have such clear blue eyes”. We remained friends, and he moved to my street that year. Since then, we have spent days at the beach with each other every summer. Freshmen year of high school, he asked me to be his girlfriend, he asked my parents and everything. Four years later I went to college 800 miles away and we would write letters and talk every day. Now here we are, 7 years later planning a wedding.
How He Asked: He took me to the beach where we first met; we had been spending our summer days there since we were 14 years old. He took my hand and we sat on our favorite bench. My head was on his shoulder and I realized his heart was pounding out of his chest, I looked up at him and told him he needed to start running again! He looked at me, then got down on one knee
and said “Lizzie, I love you, but that’s not enough, will you marry me?”
