High School Sweethearts Reunited

Recommended Posts

This is what I wrote for our wedding webpage. Milford, Ohio is a suburb of Cincy where we both grew up.




Josh and I met in high school. We knew each other well throughout our 4 years at Milford High (I had a HUGE crush on him!), however it wasn't until our Senior year that we started dating. Josh sat in front of me in Mr. Trout's Pre-calc class and when I was on crutches after ACL surgery, he carried my tray through the lunch line for me (although I think he did it so he didn't have to stand in line!). That was the beginning of our story together. We were high school sweethearts and stayed together through the beginning of our Freshman year, when he went to Wittenberg University and I went to Ohio Northern University. New friends and new environments came between us and we split up for 5 years. About 2 years ago, I ran into one of Josh's friends in Milford and asked for his cell phone number. About a month later, I received an email from Josh, telling me that he was getting ready to graduate from Fire Academy that week. I managed to get the guts to call him the night before his graduation and we talked for two and a half hours! However, it wasn't for another month that we got to see each other (I was in Toledo, he was in Cincinnati). We met in Dayton at my friend Carissa's house and spent the evening laughing and getting to know each other again. By that time, we had both already fallen back in love with each other and from that night on, I knew this was the man I was going to marry.

Josh and I bought a house in Milford the week before we got engaged. With my sister getting married just a few months from then, I thought for sure that he would wait until that passed before he proposed. However, the Sunday after we bought the house, Josh wanted to go "look around at some stuff outside." So we drove over there and were walking around looking at the deck, pool, landscaping, etc. We were walking up the front sidewalk and I kept blabbering on about the flowers and what I wanted to do with the landscaping. I was walking in front of Josh, when he said, "Stac, I don't know if I really want to buy a house with my girlfriend." Well, I turned around as fast as I could and said ,"WHAT!?!?!?!" Well, my anger immediately turned to shock when I saw Josh on his knee right in front of our front door. Then he said, "I would rather buy a house with my fiance...will you marry me?" Once I picked my jaw up from the ground, I of course said "YES!!" After I calmed down a bit, Josh then told me that the center diamond in my ring was my grandmother's diamond from her engagement ring. It was the most perfect proposal and is the most beautiful ring I have ever seen!
