Marissa and Trevor

How We Met

We met back in 2008 at my neighbors daughters birthday party. We met up one year later and exchanged numbers and started texted immediately. We had our first date on the last Wednesday of August in 2009. We had another date on his birthday which is on Halloween. He waited another week which was November 6th. I kissed him first. He asks me “to be his girlfriend?”  I said “Yes” Immediately after he told me “I love you” I said “ok”. He said “I love you again”. I said it back. We have been together ever since. In April 2016, we moved into a beautiful house together and bought a dog in August of 2016. I can’t wait to continue our journey together.

How He Asked

My fiancé proposed on my birthday (March 20th) of this year. He was calling me all day which is very rare because his phone is usually turned off all day. As soon as he got home we went to the beach with our dog Tessa. He told me “take the dog please”. He got down on two knees. I told him “get on one knee.”  He said “we have been through some ups and downs. We have been together over seven years. Will you marry me?” I said “Yes!! ” I started crying and shaking.
