Jenna & Jeremiah's Story

Jenna: Jeremiah and I have known each other for most of our lives. We both grew up in the same small town, and his mom actually worked at the daycare that I went to as a child. We became friends in high school but never revealed our interest in one another. I graduated a couple years ahead of Jeremiah and moved away to attend college at Indiana University.

We lost touch, but still remained friends on social media. During my sophomore year, I received a message from Jeremiah on Facebook. A playful conversation resulted in him giving me his number. We started talking every day and began dating a few months later. Jeremiah graduated from high school and started school at Franklin College, just 45 minutes from IU. We spent nearly every weekend together, whether I was cheering him on alongside his family at one of his football games or we were eating at one of the many delicious restaurants at IU.

A few years passed and we were on vacation with my family on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Jeremiah was a recent college graduate and I was about to start dental school. We were walking on the beach with my family and sat down on a tree trunk to exchange our “anniversary” gifts that we had brought with us since our anniversary was only a few days prior.

I gave Jeremiah his gift and he handed me an unwrapped necklace box. I opened the box and was surprised that there was nothing inside. When I looked up, Jeremiah was on one knee and was holding the most beautiful ring in his hand. He asked me to marry him, and I couldn’t be happier to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend.
