Taylor and Brandon
How We Met
Brandon and I met online in the summer of 2014. We walked briefly and didn’t talk again until November when he finally decided to answer my question of where he was from. I made a smart remark about him answering my question 3 months later. A few days later Brandon and I went on our first date, to see a movie and dinner. We have been inseparable since.
How He Asked
We went to the beach to watch the sunset and have dinner. While we were walking on the beach we saw a message in a bottle (he somehow put the bottle on the beach without me noticing it). I said that’s so cool, I’ve never seen a message in a bottle before. We opened it up and the letter inside had my initials TJO on it. I thought that was pretty cool but didn’t think anything of it. I opened the letter and it said Taylor at the top.
AGAIN, I thought it was cool and a coincidence but didn’t think anything of it (how embarrassing is that!). As I started reading the letter I know it was for me from Brandon. As I got farther down the letter I started tearing up as I knew he was going to ask me to marry him. Once I finished reading the letter, he got down on one knee and I said YES!
