Nicole and Josh
How We Met
Josh and I met in highschool. I was a freshman and he was a junior. We had the same gym class. His way of flirting with me would be to always hit the volleyball in my direction when he knew I hated it! After a few months of talking we started dating. We dated on and off while I finished highschool and he started college. Its hard when both of you are in two different places in your lives. We hit a really rough patch in our relationship and decided to call it quits. It was hard on both of us but at that time it was what had to be done. A year later around Christmas, I got a text from Josh. We talked a little and all of the feelings just came back to me. I was still deeply in love with this man. Ending a 5 year relationship was very hard but when we got back together we had a stronger connection. I always knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him.
How He Asked
We were on vacation in the outer banks with his family. It was the last night of vacation and we all went to watch fireworks on the beach for the Fourth of July. I wanted a picture of a firework over the ocean but it just was not working. I looked at Josh and told him that I was just going to videotape the finale. When the finale came I had the video started and was very focused on it. I kept hearing Josh say my name and I finally looked at him and asked what? That’s when I saw him on one knee and that’s when he asked me to marry him.
