Meet Melissa and T.J.  They make the word Love extra special because truly they are sweet souls.  Here is a little about their love story, so Melissa and T.J. met through a mutual friend back in 2012 and they bonded instantly!  In November, T.J. asked Melissa to be his girlfriend and of course, she said, "YES"!  So, every November Mel and T.J. celebrated their anniversary by heading over the Key West.  Their favorite place in the Florida Keys.

However, in November of 2016, T.J. planned a special surprise for Melissa during their annual Key West Trip.  T.J. had secretly arranged for a private sailboat to take them to on a sunset cruise.  Melissa was surprised and excited since she was expecting to go on a tarpon charter.   Little did she know that T.J. was about to pop "the question!"

Once they arrived at the marina, a captain waved them down and asked invited them to a private sailboat!  Melissa couldn't have been more excited since neither of them had ever been sailing before.

They sailed past Mallory Square and around Sunset Key. It was pretty windy out but the sunset was absolutely STUNNING! The captain offered to take some pictures, so the captain waited until the boat was in the perfect spot and let them walk to the bow.

Melissa turned around to look at the sunset and when she looked back at T.J.  he was getting down on one knee...  and then he said "Babe, will you marry me?" "Of, course!" She replied.   Melissa was so shocked and so unbelievably happy!  T.J.  couldn't have picked a more perfect way to pop the question.

They spent the rest of the time hanging out on the bow watching the gorgeous Key West sunset and sipping some bubbly!
