How many of you are married to a high school classmate? I can’t imagine it is that many of you! Speaking for myself, I feel I have changed so much from my high school years. It was hard enough for me to live those changes, much less to try and bring someone else along for the ride. Thank god I met my husband in my mid-twenties haha.
Well I guess it’s love stories like Natalie and Michael, pictured below, that they make movies about. I can see the scene now, “Teenage classmates accidentally bump into each other at the bar, suddenly a wave a nostalgia washes over them, what was once nothing more than a high school friendship instantly becomes something more.” That chance encounter led to a nine year love story! The latest chapter beginning with a very romantically awkward proposal haha. I’ll let Natalie share how Michael surprised her with the big question.
“The proposal was the sweetest. I had just started my maternity leave & needed a day to just relax so we decided to drive up to Ventura beach to just have a chill day. We got ice cream & sat on the beach. I noticed him acting a little awkward the whole day. While we were chatting about where we were going to go have dinner he stood up pretending to stretch & began to kneel down on his knee..I quickly grabbed him & yanked him down knowing instantly what he was about to do..I was so shocked that I reacted so quickly not even noticing I pulled him down to the ground! He asked & I sobbingly blurted out a yes & it’s about time! We cried together & held each other with so much love & joy.”
How sweet is that! I just love how proposal stories are so unique to each couple. I can’t wait to meet you and hear your proposal story at your bridal makeup and hair trial.
