Phil and I got engaged on December 24, 2010 at my parents house in Chapel Hill, TN after only dating for 8 months. I know eight months doesn't seem very long but when you know your with the one you were meant for, you grab hold and never let go.
How we met
We were set up on a blind date by my mom and a long time friend of Phil's. I was living in Chattanooga and Phil was living in Nashville at the time. I had recently decided that I wanted
to move closer to home and was looking to transfer with my job. My mom had been working part time at a clothing department store and had become friendly with her assistant manager. She had mentioned to her new friend that she had a
daughter and started talking about me with her friend on a regular basis. One day her friend mentioned that she had a male friend that was single and wasn't having any luck in the relationship department. She asked my mom if she could give
her friend Phil my number. Of course my mom said yes and called me and told me all about it. Of course I said absolutely not and refused for about two weeks before I gave in. Two and a half weeks went by and I never heard from Phil so of
course my mom begged me to call him and gave me his number. I didn't call him I sent him a text and introduced myself he called back immediately and told me that he deleted the text with my number by mistake and that's why he never called. I
was coming home for the weekend so we decided to meet. Our first date was on May 9, 2009 at the Cheesecake Factory in Nashville, TN. He was nothing like I expected him to be, he was so much more. We talked every day from that night
forward and we made it a point to spend as much time with each other as we could even though we were two hours away from each other. Needless to say we inseparable and Phil helped move me to Nashville one month later on June 26, 2009.
