*Pro Pics: {{Engagements}} + Our Story

It was just a boring night at work until the person who would change my life walked through the door.

My FI and I met when I was waiting tables at a local restaurant while I was a junior in college.  He walked in to eat dinner with his family and friends one evening.  My eyes nearly bugged out of my head when I went to take his order.  Since it was a slow night at work for me, I sat at a nearby table and read a book.  After much prodding from his brother-in-law, my FI got up the nerve to come and talk to me.  We talked for over 2 hours. He asked me out on a date, but I wasn't available, and he was home on leave from the military at the time.  It just wouldn't work.  He gave me his phone number anyway.  Time passed, and I frequently thought about him.  We kept in contact some with occasional phone calls and e-mails.  When he got out of the military and came home for good, I agreed to go on a lunch date with him.  Since he had just moved home and did not have a stable job yet, he was dirt broke.  He spent his last $30 to take me out.  There was not a second of silence the entire nearly 2-3 hours we were there.  I'm sure the waiter was annoyed because it took us nearly an hour to break our conversation to order.  It didn't take us long to realize that we were with the person we were going to marry.  We have been inseparable ever since.  He is my other half in every way and the best friend a girl could ask for.  I currently coach a colorguard squad and teach 9th grade English at a local high school.  My FI received his honorable discharge from the Marine Corps 2 years ago and, he is now working on his Bachelor's in Exercise Science and to become a physical therapist after his Master's.  We cannot WAIT to start our new life together!
