How We Met

Timothy and I at my graduation dinner.

Tim and I met in back in 2009. We were both in high school, I was a senior and he was a sophomore. We had a lot of mutual friends but he thought it would be better if he sent me a message on MySpace. Once we introduced ourselves we would chat online nonstop. We finally met in person and after a couple speed bumps we became inseparable. We share the same alma maters for high school and college. We’ve moved to two different states together.  I like to think that we are soul mates, if I think it he’ll say it and vice versa, most of the time we already know what the other is thinking. We balance each other out in every way possible.

How He Asked

Over the last couple birthdays and anniversaries Tim has done an amazing job at my gifts. They were always so thoughtful they’d even make me cry! So I figured I’d surprise him with a trip to Puerto Rico for his birthday this year. I coordinated it with his brother and his brothers girlfriend. It was going to be the biggest suprise I ever planned. We got to Puerto Rico on Friday, April 15th, his birthday. We had an amazing day exploring Old San Juan. We went back to our rooms to freshen up for dinner. Before dinner we decided to take a walk on the beach in Condado. We stopped and Tim says “babe, come look at the water” and puts his arm around me. We start talking and he proceeds to say “this has been the best birthday ever. But you know what would make it even better?” And got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. It was a surreal moment. Everyone on the beach and their balcony hotels starting cheering. His brother was behind us the whole time recording. I couldn’t believe it!
