Philip & Eric
Originally meeting via the internet a few weeks prior, Eric and I officially met on September 25, 2006. Behooved to the both of us, as neither of us had out of the ordinary expectations, this day turned out to be not only our first date with each other but the last time either of us would want to date anyone else again.
Over the next couple years we both went through tremendous growing and learning spells. Learning and growing, not only individually but also together. Falling in love with each other and learning that there could not be a better match for either one of us.
After a year together we adopted a dog, a pug named Booger. (not a typo!) Unsure of that either would be ready for that responsibility it began the start of our family.
Fast forward to April 24th, 2009, D-Day, or so to speak. Eric and I closed on our first home purchase together, a day that I had been anxiously awaiting for months for than one obvious reason. After closing we rushed like school girls back to our new home to walk through, together. In the empty living room as the sun beaming through the stained glass encroaches on my face I get down on one knee. Trembling, I manage to pull out a ring box and a note I typed of what I knew I wanted to say but knew I would not remember. All the while Eric, oblivious that I am about to propose the question that I had been picturing in my head for years, is attempting to determine whether or not counter height bar stools would fit. The words take a good minute to sink in, an immediate yes! Hugs and kisses exchanged, tears shed. This has turned out to be one of the best days of our lives thus far.
With a date set (depends which one of us you ask 🙂 ) we begin planning Our wedding….
