How they met:
We met just before we both entered our doctorate program in physical therapy at the University of the Pacific in Stockton California. I'm (Abigail) from Reno, Nevada and David is from Turlock California. We spent our first couple of months dating long distance until I moved into the area for school. Our friendship and love for each other only grew from there. We both knew from the start we were meant for each other so David happily took it to the next level by popping the big question, and of course asking my dad for permission first.
We spent most of our free time in San Luis Obispo with friends and where we had our first date. David, and his great memory, thought it would be fun to take a trip on our break from graduate school and visit that special place again. Unbeknownst to me, we arrive just after sunset when the beach was completely empty. Strolling along the shore, just the two of us, David pointed out it was where our first date was and where he knew he wanted to marry me. He slowly pulled the ring out of his pocket (that he had there all day and I had no idea even on a four hour drive) and bent on one knee to ask me to marry him. Shocked and unbelievably happy I said yes!
What he likes about her:
She's smart, humble, doesn't know how pretty she is and is amazing with kids. Her faith in Christ encourages and uplifts me with wisdom and discernment.
What she likes about him:
He's amazing! He's playful, energetic and encouraging, never fails to make me laugh and always has an opinion about something. His steadfast love for Christ is a cornerstone to build our marriage on and reflect Jesus is our lives together.
