Timing is everything they say, and in the case of my amazing fiance and I, I would have to agree wholeheartedly.
Daniel and I met my freshman year of college the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL in August of 2006. We soon became very close and he was one of my best friends for four years. We had a very close and unique connection and no one quite gets me like he does.
In fall 2010 we lost touch and soon after, I moved to Nashville, TN. Although I missed my friend, we were in very different places both geographically and in our lives in general. I thought of him often, and always hoped the best for him. In June of 2013, he reached out to me on Facebook and we reconnected. It was as if no time had passed and our friendship started back full force. This time, however, there was something more there.
We quickly developed feeling for one another and before I knew it, I was head over heels for this amazing man. Never did I know I would find the man of my dreams in my longtime friend…but there he was and I couldn’t be happier. We pursued our relationship long distance for a short while, and in December 2013 we took a chance and he moved to Nashville.
On May 3, 2013, while hanging out in my apartment, Daniel “went down to the car” and while he was gone there was a knock on my door. It was one of my closest friends with a note, and a napkin from subway symoblizing where Daniel and I first met. The note told me how he had no idea that day, that I would be the girl he fell in love with and instructed me to get dressed! It was going down.
Before I could digest what had just happened, there was another knock and my very good friend Meghan showed up. This time with a bag os skittles (his nickname for me) and another note telling me how, like skittles, I bring a rainbow of happiness into his life. The third knock came shortly after, and it was my Mom holding a dress. She simply said “You can’t get engaged without your mom, and a dress.”
I got ready and they drove me to Centinneal Park in Nashville where my best friend, and the love of my life asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. And I, of course, said YES. It was the perfect unique proposal to match our special love story.
