I was sitting and talking to some friends at the chapel up at Forest Home getting ready for Mike Erre to speak. Before Mike got up on stage a guy came out and tried to get everyone to meet someone new. He said you never know, if there is someone you have been eying you should go over and talk to them. He mentioned that he had met his wife at the same place 8 years ago. Well... my mind started thinking and I knew that I saw this beautiful blonde haired girl around the day before and then I saw her about 15 rows in front of me. I thought if I didn't go talk to this girl I would regret it for the rest of my life - no joke. So I made my way down one aisle and over to the row she was in and stood right behind her patiently waiting to talk to her. My heart was pounding so fast that I didn't know what to do. I just started asking her a bunch of questions really fast. And sure enough after talking for a minute we realized that we had met each other once before exactly one year earlier. Then it was time to get back in our seats, I then realized that I had 2 days before this retreat was over and I had to get her number. The next night I saw her strolling around the common areas with her friend Jenna and by that time I had convinced myself that she wasn't into me. The friends that I was with (amber and brandon) told me that she totally just checked me out. So Brandon went in as the wingman and started up a conversation and before you know it Brandon disappeared and it was just Aimee and I. The conversation went so smoothly and I got her number right then and there to seal the deal. When I got back to Orange County I couldn't abide by the rules and wait 2 days, I just had to call her. I asked her out on date to McClains Coffee House and that's the story of how I met my true love exactly 2 years ago today. I love you Aimee and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you!
I played this slideshow for Aimee right before I asked her to marry me. Press play and it should load
