“Matt and I met when we were in high school - rival high schools!”
Matt and I met when we were in high school – rival high schools! Our towns are a mile apart, so the rival was real!!!!! …We would see each other from time to time at town functions, at the gym and even at high school parties but we never really spoke. It was not until my first summer home from college that Matt and I happened to bump into each other at the gym. We talked for a few minutes but it was cut short because I had to get to an appointment. I left the gym and had no idea what that conversation would eventually lead to. A few days after we spoke I had 1 unread facebook message when I came home from work. It was Matt asking me out on our first date! Little did we know that date would lead into many dates that summer which turned into 6 years which led Matt to ask me to marry him! November 12th, 2016 was the happiest day of my life! My best friend asked me to spend my life with him….
I was driving home from work on Thursday November 12th, 2015 when I called Matt to ask him what he wanted for dinner that night. We discussed dinner options my entire drive home. As I parked my car, we finally agreed on tacos at one of our favorite restaurants (my favorite)! I walked up to my door and began to open the apartment door, as I turned the key I felt someone on the other side stop me! All of the sudden I was told (by Matt) to close my eyes. At first, I had thought he made a nice dinner and wanted to surprise me and before I knew it, he was down on one knee with rose petals and candles covering my apartment. After I said “YES!!!” we celebrated with champagne and tacos <3… I am so happy to have Matt in my life and can not wait to see what our future holds!
