 “Joseph and I had known each other since middle school, but never really talked. That is, until several different people kept bringing up the idea of setting us up. After the third or fourth person told us that we HAD to go on a date, Joseph made the call. Seven months later, here we are! He planned the perfect proposal, taking me to Thomasville, my favorite little town and getting down on one knee right in front of the famous big oak tree. To make the day even better, he planned to have both our families surprise me afterwards at Jonah’s, one of our favorite places, to celebrate! Neither one of us could have ever imagined that we met our future spouse in 6th grade, but we are both so blessed that we did! Since we are both teachers, winning this contest would be a dream come true!“
