Melanie and Chris
Last year when Chris and I were dating we found out he was going to deploy later in the year. We were both so upset as we had so many plans for things we wanted to do together. We had a long distance relationship as he was stationed in South Carolina and I lived in Virginia. We had planned on getting engaged later this year but the news of the deployment changed everything. The day he proposed was rainy and we were just hanging out at my moms house with my nephews and sister. My nephews have always had such a huge part of my heart so the day my husband asked me to marry him he was sure to include them. They came and sat on my lap and said “Chris has a question for you” and confused I asked what? I looked over and saw him down on one knee. One of the happiest and most incredible moments of my life.
