Highschool Sweethearts

My fiancé Eric and I started dating in high school, but there is much more to our story than the average High School sweet hearts! By the beginning of senior year we had been dating for about 5 months. We were all making tough decisions about what college to attend and what on earth we would be doing with our lives. Eric had made the choice to join the US Navy. It was a shocking decision because of our relationship, but I respected his decision and had faith that if we were meant to be it would all work out.
When the day came for him to leave we decided to officially break up as to prevent hurting each other while separated for 4 years. During my years at college we spoke and wrote to each other when ever he was able to. Even though there were times when he was not able to contact me for months I always knew in my heart that he was the one for me. The biggest surprise for me was on my 21st B-day when a box arrived at my dorm room. Inside was a souvenir from each place Eric had traveled to!
After what seemed like an eternity I graduated and Eric was based in Hawaii. He asked me to move there with him for the remainder of his duties. It was a blast! About a year later we decided to move to Connecticut close to where my friends from school had been living. We had finally found the most perfect house to move into. The day we moved in, he proposed while standing in the midst of 100 boxes! It couldn’t have been more perfect!
