How did you first meet?
In Principles of Management class at FGCU. Dominic sat in my pre-claimed seat and we ended up being in the same group for the class. I am glad he decided to sit there!
What is the most attractive feature/qualities about your fiance?
His eyes have a constant sparkle to them that makes me smile, even when I am furious with him. His personality is calming and brings balance to my life. He has been through a lot in the past few years and I admire his personal strength but also the strength he maintains for his family and myself.
What is your fondest dating memory?
I would say our "firsts" throughout our time together thus far. On our first date, I unknowingly made fun of one of his passions and he respected my wishes to pay for my own meal; he definitely was a trooper. Our first apartment was a scary process with lots of unknowns but worth it when it was just us. Our first puppy baby was a handful but was so memorable and we are still making memories with him today. Our first vacation, first time meeting each other's families, first fight, first grocery store visit; all so memorable and I cherish each one. Looking forward to making more!
When did you know you were in love?
Fairly soon after we officially started dating, right after I spent some time with him and his family. Him & I just fit together so perfectly and he quickly became a necessary part of my life that I didn't want to lose.
What day did you get engaged?
December 2nd, 2017. It is my best friend's birthday; he asked her before hand if that was OK! I am glad it's on a special day like that one.
Where & how did he ask?
Somewhere in Highlands, North Carolina in a little-known spot called Secret Falls. It's about a 1.5 mile downward hike to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the area. Apparently he was trying to propose all day (it was a day full of hiking and gorgeous scenery) and I wasn't the most cooperative. Once at Secret Falls, the group all lined up to snap a photo and in the corner of my eye I see Dominic getting on one knee. I was so surprised! Of course I said YES and couldn't stop happy-crying. He had been carrying the ring in his wallet the whole day-- poor guy!
