Of all the places....Autozone, yup you read it right. The first time Eric laid eyes on Melissa. She came into the store to buy blue interior lights to give her car a little more character than it already had 😉 couple days later, he built up the courage to message her over Facebook to see how the lights looked. Shortly after Melissa’s bestie was turning 27 (so of course we had a party) Eric stopped by just for a couple of drinks, he was mesmerized by Melissa’s beer pong skills (not really) but unfortunately he had to leave early 😕. The next day, there was not a time that their phones weren’t going off from texting each. Eric invited Melissa over to watch a movie. Watched about 10 minutes and talked through the rest 🤷🏼♀️😅 They talked about the stars, the moon and everything in between. Their second date, Eric took Melissa to star gaze at Beltzville✨🌙 it was filled with tranquility. Fast forward to a year and a couple months later. They went to visit Melissa’s parents for the weekend after Christmas, as they were finishing up opening presents....there was one last gift to be opened. As Melissa started unwrapping the gift, Eric got down on one knee and asked Melissa to be his forever love. Surrounded by family and friends and through the ugly cry Melissa said yes to becoming the Future Mrs. Stephan!
