I’m literally having weekend withdrawal after that nice long weekend. Its been the Monday-iest Tuesday eva. I hope this blog post brightens up your day as much as it does mine.
SKYLAR + DEREK
How They Met:
You’re not going to believe this, but we actually met on Tinder. It was my last semester of college and my friend randomly told me to download the app to pass the time in class…HAHA. So I thought, “What the heck?!”… and did it. You know how it goes…we both swiped right and were a match! Derek then came to meet me at Slippery Rock and our first date consisted of lifting at the ARC followed by him cooking me dinner. I couldn’t imagine anything more fitting.
How He Proposed:
Man oh man, if you’ve seen the Youtube video then you know he went all out. It was a Thursday night in January. I had gotten off work and stopped to grab food on the way home..you know, totally taking my time. Unbeknownst to me, he had taken the day off work to decorate the house in rose petals, candles, and pictures of us over the past 3 years. I walked in the front door and he had a laptop set up in front of a huge projector screen in our house that said “Press Play”. He had created a video of all our special moments together over the years along with one of my favorite songs playing in the background. The end of the video directed me to “walk outside” to our back patio where he was waiting for me on one knee. He was surrounded by candles in the shape of a heart and had “Marry Me” illuminated by candles as well. As if that surprise wasn’t enough, he got my family to travel 4+ hours to witness the whole thing. BEST DAY EVER.
