Samantha and Ricky

How We Met

I never thought that I would in 10,000 years meet a guy on a dating app. I wasn’t even seriously looking when I met Ricky on Tinder. We talked for a week. Decided that he would drive up (over an hour) to take me out to eat. That morning I was so nervous I wanted to cancel the date but my gut told me not to! The second I saw him, I knew he was the one.

How He Asked

Fall is our favorite season and ever since our first fall together last year, we decided to make a tradition of pumpkin picking. We’ve been talking all week about pumpkin picking at a local winery which is nothing out of the ordinary (he is always so romantic with dates). We started the day like we would any other day that we’re off together. Gym and some errands. We get ready to go, and I ask him why is he wearing nice shoes since it was rainy out. He blew it off so I thought nothing of it. We get to the winery and we start walking up to the patch . I’m so busy looking down so I don’t trip that he has to stear me towards the set up. I look up and see all these carved pumpkins ser up so nicely. It still hasn’t hit me with what was happening. A few steps closer and I see “Sam” carved on the pumpkin in the middle. I am now close enough to see what it says.. My heart stops. I turn around and Ricky is getting down on one knee with a box in his hand. I was so shocked and couldn’t stop shaking! He asked me to marry him and I said something like ,”Are you serious, YES! ” . After we hug he points to the trees behind me, and there is his brother hiding taking picture of this special moment!
