Stacey and Tj

How We Met: TJ and I met back in 2004 at a Halloween party, we were in 8th grade at the time. I Immediately noticed him and thought he was cute. Throughout the rest of that school year I tried my best to get to know him more and tried talking to him. He totally forgot about me from the party and thought I was totally crazy. I kept trying and trying and by Memorial Day of 2005 he finally sat down with me, we talked, and exchanged numbers. On June 3, 2005 I invited him to go to an amusement park with all of our friends and it was there he finally asked me out. It’s been history since then.. 10 years later!

How He Asked: We had plans to go to dinner somewhere nice then take a trip down to the beach to walk around. This is something we normally would do so I never thought twice of it. It was a beautiful night and after dinner we walked around town, stopped to have a drink, then decided to drive down to the beach around sunset. We get to the beach and walk down by the water where we stopped and he held me as we looked at the water and towards the sun. A couple of minutes later he tells me to turn around. Sure enough my best friend and his best friend were there that held up signs saying “I just have one question for you”. I was in total shock, and I turned back around and there he was down on 1 knee with the ring out. I cried as he asked me to marry him. It was beautiful!
