We met through a mutual friend. She was Peytons fifth grade teacher and she was Pats best friend from high school. She knew we would be perfect for each other. She had reached out to both of us and we didn't really think too much into it (besides stalking on social media). Nicole posted on Facebook looking for input on getting a dog and Pat responded. A few weeks later we were talking all day/every day. After a few weeks of talking on the phone we finally met and we haven't left each others side since.
The Keys have always been a place for us to visit and relax. We were staying at Bakers Cay for the weekend. We went for drinks at the bar near the beach and then went down to a secluded place near the water to watch the sunset. This is something we do often. We were sitting there and decided to take our sunset picture and while we were doing this Pat got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He said the sweetest things and was also kneeling in the water (if you know Pat you know this is a big deal as he hates being wet). Of course I said YES!!!!!!
