What was your first date?: We first met through mutual friends. He went to grade school with the friends that I made in high school. Because of this, when the friends made plans to hang out on 4th of July on main street St. Charles, we were both there. We were in a big group but that didn't stop us from finding each other and clicking immediately. From then we starting talking and went on our first official date a few weeks later (to the movies driven by our parents of course). Lol. We were only 15 at the time.
Tell us the story of the proposal?: Over labor day weekend, we had plans to travel home from Missouri S&T where we are both students. We made reservations to Trailhead, on main street, but we arrived early and took a walk down the street with the shops and restraunts. Then we went down by the riverfront and he took me to the little hill where we had watched fireworks together that night we first met. As Brandon said, it was "the place where I stole his heart 1888 days prior" so he thought he should do the same.
