We actually met in kindergarten and were good friends throughout school.
We both value the importance of memories. He has really opened my eyes to living in the moment and I will always treasure that.
I kind of always knew as cheesy as that sounds. We would talk about whoever we were dating at the time, but I always felt a little bit of jealousy when he would tell me about other girls.
I have never been so surprised. We were on one of our usual adventures and I actually suddenly felt inclined to tell him how much he meant to me. He reciprocated with his thoughts and suddenly he was proposing. It was perfect.
When I was in high school, I drew him a picture of what I thought would be the most perfect ring. He clearly has an amazing memory because he surprised me with just that.
Yes! It’s such a stressful time right now, but I find relief in knowing that we have that to look forward to together. We want it to be very personalized and special to us. The kind of wedding where our guests show up and think “this is so them”.
