How did you meet?

We met at a party through a mutual friend(Arielle). We had no idea that she knew us separately. We just happened to be standing opposites sides of her and it clicked to her that we needed to exchange numbers right then, at that moment. She snatched our phones and made us exchange numbers and threatened that she would end our friendships with her lol. Surprisingly Myron texted me the next day and we have never stopped since then.

How long did you date?

A month after meeting each other, my job moved me a hour away but that didn’t stop us from getting to know each other. After 6 months, we decided to make it official. 2 years later, Myron proposed.

How did he propose?

We were in the process of closing on our house when right before we did the inspection, he met me outside of the house with his stepmom and before we walked back in together he said he felt that we should get this house has husband and wife and got on his knee and proposed!

When did you know he was the one?

When we officially started dating. The first 6 months of getting to know each other really showed me of what a gentleman and genuine good guy was suppose to be like. He has treated me like a Queen since the first day.

What is the cutest thing he has done for you without you asking?

Cooked and set up a candlelight dinner when I got home from work for Valentine’s Day.

What is something you love about him that has completely changed your life?

His trust and honesty. He makes me feel like I never have to worry about a thing when he is around me. I feel safe with him.
