We met working for Sweet Valley Ranch's Dinosaur World. Tony and I were in training together, and we got to put in the same area. We were practically together every day, so we got to know one another pretty well. Sure, he was annoying at first, but I grew to love that about him. He had bought me a stuffed T-rex on my birthday and the rest was history.
When Tony asked me to be his girlfriend, he got down on one knee at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh NC. He had a red ring pop in his pocket and asked me if I would be his girlfriend on the rooftop breezeway in front of our friends. He had always joked about asking me with a ring pop before we actually started dating. A year and a half later... When he asked me to be his wife, he got down on one knee to ask me to marry him in front of the dinosaur light display at the Chinese Lantern Festival in Raleigh NC. He had a garnet ring in his hand just like the ring pop he used to ask me to be his girlfriend. It was absolutely magical. It started with dinosaurs, and it will always have some way to tie back into dinosaurs.
