Savannah and Darion
How We Met
Darion is best friends with Elijah, and I am best friends with my dearest Jessie. Elijah and Jessie are brother and sister (2 years apart) so we both would always be at their house hanging out with our best friends. During that time, he was in a relationship and so was I. He was single when he transferred to Wright State University for baseball and I was single at Point Loma Nazarine University playing volleyball. We would FaceTime every once in awhile and when he came home for Christmas break, decided to come visit me in San Diego while my team and I celebrated our national championship. We hit it off that weekend and the rest has been history!
How He Asked
My senior teammates and I decided we should go to dinner to end our year together. My best friend also came down from Riverside to see me since she said she would be unable to during Christmas break. On the way over the girls told me and another teammate that the real purpose of us going to dinner was to celebrate us two being named All-Americans this previous year in volleyball. At that time, they blindfolded us because they had a surprise. We got to the restaurant, where I took off my shoes, and my best friend walked me down to the beach. She then handed me off to my boyfriend (who I couldn’t see). Darion took the blindfold off, said some things I can’t remember because I was crying, proposed, then turned me around to see that his family, my dad and some of my family had all came down from out of town to be there on this special day!
