She finally got up the nerve to talk to him and with that began chatting with him often when he came in. Finally one night, he got up the courage to ask her out and when he awkwardly asked “What are you doing this weekend?” her response was “going out with my boyfriend”. Not the answer Eric was looking for, he gave up and stopped coming into the Knotty Pine after that.
Some time went by and after not seeing Eric for months, Nicole took the initiative and called him. While he was shocked, he was certainly elated and eventually after a few dozen 2 hour phone conversations – he asked her out. Again. And with much excitement and delight she accepted his offer.
Later after many more 2 hour conversations, dates, and courting Eric found it time to ask Nicole to be his wife. He picked a day, and he didn’t choose one that was perfect, or elaborate, or special. He chose a day where Nicole was feeling tired and overwhelmed. A ordinary day that he planned to turn magical. She came home frustrated to a bubble bath and candles. After unwinding, he came to her and got down on one knee and proposed. And again with much excitement and delight, she accepted his offer.
Next fall the two will again turn an ordinary day into something magical when they say their “I do’s” in front of family and friends.
Congrats to you both and enjoy the photos!!
