How Did You First Meet?
When I moved back from Orlando after graduating college I began working at our family owned dealership. I started to process the tag work at the tax collectors office where I met Thomas.
What is the most attractive feature/qualities about your fiance?
I absolutely adore Thomas' personality, he would do anything for his friends or family, works hard, serves our Country and always a step ahead of me while planning our future.
What is your fondest dating memory?
I'm a homebody and never one to venture out of my comfort zone but he MAKES me travel. I have flown more times since we started dating then I did my whole life before and those trips are my favorite memories.
When did you know you were in love?
As silly as it sounds, people always said "you'll know when you find the one" and I found it true as soon as I first met Thomas. There was always a pull to him that I couldn't resist and I knew I loved him the first time he left for annual tour with the Air Force in 2015, I never felt a void like that before from someone just being on a "trip". When he returned, he returned with a t-shirt making us official.
What day did you get engaged?
We got engaged February 23, 2018.
Where & how did he ask?
He was planning an engagement for a while, I always found a way to make a joke and ruin his plans. I DO NOT like being the center of attention so whenever I felt like he was going to make a big deal out of a proposal I would spoil it or question my mom and sister until they would say something. He finally was able to surprise me by proposing in our dining room at home. I came home after my nail appointment like a normal day but he had another t-shirt asking me to be his wife already set out with a ring and when I turned around he was on one knee. It was perfectly us and I guess t-shirts are now officially our thing.
