Q: Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?
A: We met sept 28th 2007 at a high school football game
. It was Amilio’s by week (football player) so he came to a different game that week with his sister and cousin. My friends told me a guy wanted to talk to me i said NO lol but somehow i was alone in the parking lot and he popped up on me. We exchanged numbers LOL
Q: What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. (example: pushing each other to new limits, love to travel, huge comic book fans, foodies, etc.) What makes your relationship unique?
A: Our relationship we are truly each others best friends. We are big kids at heart and love to watch cartoons. This may not be unique but the one thing we value most besides GOD is each other. Our first date was the movies and is still constant to this day. We never had to build each other because we’ve always grown together….come on we’ve been together 10 years that’s a long time LOL
Q: How did you know your partner was the one? When did you first know this in your relationship? (these may often be the same moment, but aren’t always)
A: Amilio: a month after we met i knew we were gonna get married one day and i was gonna love her forever.
Q: Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?
A: Amilio told me to schedule
a day off from work. He took me to get breakfast at metro diner, then the movies and then we went and got couple’s massages
. He then told me we were going to a black out dinner experience where we had to be blindfolded
before walking in . (Yes im gullible LOL) mind you i said you’re about to propose aren’t you ..he said no. I believed him. Lol he escorted me into a building blindfolded and removed it and both of our families we’re surrounding us with him on one knee in front of me. Surprise engagement party LOL
Q: Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?
A: 1 month and some change to go and we are definitely ready to say I DO. We are getting married a day shy of our 10 year anniversary. A decade down more to go!
