Jessica + Matt
"Matt and I both grew up in Dublin and went to the same high school (Trinity Christian School). We didn't start dating until I was 16 and Matt had already started college. He Facebook messaged me and later we exchanged numbers. Our first date was to Zaxby's (just a few days after I had my wisdom teeth out, so my whole face was swollen up like a chipmunk!). We continued to date while Matt attended Georgia Southern and later when I attended nursing school at the Medical College of Georgia. After we both completed college and moved back to Dublin permanently, we began talking about marriage. Matt showed me a beautiful solitaire diamond necklace that was his grandmother's and told me it would be mine one day if I wanted it.
Finally, after over 7 years of dating, on October 3rd, 2015, Matt proposed to me! I had worked the night before and normally if I don't have to go back to work that night I only sleep for a couple of hours that morning so I can enjoy the rest of the day. Well, that particular day I slept on into the afternoon and when I woke up I was fit to be tied because I felt like I had wasted my day. I went over to Matt's and sat down on the couch and when I did, he asked me "Did you not see it?" And I asked, "See what?" He said, "Your surprise!" I got back up, looked on the sofa table, and there was a ring box. Matt said, "So are we getting married?" Of course, I said YES! :) He turned a normal day when I was down in the dumps into a very special day that I will remember for the rest of my life!"
