My fiance Robert and I met while he was lifeguarding in Myrtle Beach in August of 2013. I have vacationed in Myrtle Beach with my family for my entire life. We talked throughout the week, but by the end of the week, I was far too shy to give him my number.
My last night of vacation, I left a note tied to his lifeguard bench. With the ocean wind and rain that night, I didn't know if he would ever get that note or if I would ever see him again. The next morning, Robert texted me. Robert is from Virginia and I am from New Jersey. He asked me out on our first date one month later in Baltimore, Md., for a Red Red Sox game and we have been together ever since.
Robert proposed to me this spring for a surprise trip to California for my birthday. He is truly the best souvenir I have ever brought home!
