Tell us how you met and all about the proposal. We met on the playground during recess at B. Bernice Young Elementary School through a mutual friend! I thought we were stopping at our old elementary to do a quick alumni tour because we were selected as the featured alumni but before I knew it, we were outside with family and friends and he was on one knee asking for my hand in marriage.
