We met at Davenport University in class, and were acquaintances for years. Then we reconnected at a holiday function he and some friends organized. We exchanged numbers, then COVID hit and the world shut down. Our date nights were very creative, and we spent so much time together. We realized we actually like one another. The connection and chemistry was amazing. That’s pretty much when we thought, "Okay. This could be something."
On the 2nd anniversary of our Annual Family Day where we connect and share food, laughter, and love with family and friends. We were giving a speech and thanking our guest for being present and telling them how much we appreciate them. He allowed me to go first and I was clueless-then when it was his turn he got down on one knee. When I realized what was happening I was overwhelmed with emotions. I think I was in shock! I was so excited and fought back the tears. We're engaged! We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you.
