Mckinsey and Dylan
How We Met
Dylan and I have known each other since our freshman year of high school, however, we did not start dating until our senior year. We had always been friends but God brought us together at just the perfect time. My daddy was battling lung cancer and I was completely lost. Dylan saved me and has continued to save me every day since then. The past 5 1/2 years have brought us so many adventures that I can only imagine how incredible the rest of our life will be together.
How He Asked
Dylan’s family was planning to have a get together at the lake the evening of May 6th. I never expected anything out of the ordinary because this is something they do often. His sister, Bailey, and I went to get our nails done earlier in the day while him and his family were decorating the dock and preparing for the big moment. Bailey and I were the last to the party which was also nothing out of the ordinary because we are always late. When I got out of the car and saw the dock decorated the way it was I was so confused.
I looked at Bailey and said “this doesn’t look like a party.” She just acted as if she didn’t know what was going on. Once I started walking down toward the dock the song “marry me” by Train started to play and I knew exactly what was about to happen. Tears flowed down my face as I walked down to the love of my life surrounded my our family and friends. It was truly a dream come true. I was so shocked when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, all I could do was cry.
I’m really not even sure if I said yes :) The proposal was such a dream come true!
