We met at St.Thomas middle school school in the fall of 2003. Joey was a 7th grader and I was an 8th grader. We started dating October 18th of that year. After some time apart we found love again during Joey's Freshman year at Indiana University and have been dating since.
Our Engagement Story
It was Labor Day and we decided to go to New Buffalo, Michigan for dinner and to watch the sunset like we had done a couple times in the past. We found a spot on a sand dune and he asked me to open a bottle of wine with the label reading "will you marry me". He than I got on his knee and popped the question. Joey reserved a room at the Harbor Grand Hotel where all our immediate family was waiting to congratulate us.
About the Ring
Joey picked it out all by himself, it was a complete sparkly surprise and I absolutely love it.
