How did you meet your husband? How did he propose? I first met Coleman at a ward FHE in September 2010. Shortly after, we were set up on a group date with my roommates and his roommates. To my surprise he asked me out a couple days later and we dated ever since.
Coleman proposed in February 2012 by putting together a fun, little scavenger hunt. He typed out the story of our relationship ever since we started dating in the form of a fairy tale and placed them, along with pictures and other little gifts, at each clue. He had my friend take me out to a gymnastics meet and when I arrived home I found the first clue on my door. I found the next clue in my room, then the next in my brother's apartment, then the next in my car, and I finally wound up at Coleman's apartment where a clue was hidden in his piano. The last clue directed me to my own apartment and instructed me to take Coleman with me. When I opened the door I found tons of candles lighting the apartment and making a path to the kitchen table. At the table I found a snow globe he made (with me and him and a ring inside), flowers, and the last part of the fairy tale story. After I read the words "And then they lived happily ever after..." I turned around to find Coleman on his knee.
