Brent and I are high school sweethearts. We met our sophomore year and really hit it off, and have been together ever since. We spent a lot of time apart, going to college, studying abroad, whatnot, but have stayed together through thick and thin. Last year, after I finished a study abroad program in Austria, Brent met me in Paris where we spent a day wandering the city before taking off for Ireland. We spent two weeks touring Dublin and Galway. It was amazing. Every bit of it. While in Galway, Brent proposed to me with an authentic Claddaugh ring, from Galway, in the original Claddaugh fishing village. We have been wearing matching Claddaugh rings on our ring fingers since we first started dating. When he asked me, he failed to get on one knee (he blames the cobblestone street and his nerves), and all I could say is "is this real? like I can tell my mom real?? like I can make it FB official real?" After 7 years together, we were finally engaged! . I am so excited to marry my best friend!
