The Date August 20
How They Met Amberley and Doug first met through one of Amberley's sorority sisters, who was dating Doug's roommate at the time. Though they didn't make a connection the first time they met, when they were re-introduced later Doug asked Amberly out on a date. More than five years later, Doug surprised Amberley with a sweet proposal. He asked her if she could read over something for him, which she assumed was work-related. "Instead, it was a humorous, sweet children's book of our relationship that he had written and drawn in crayon," Amberley remembers. "After I read it, he proposed."
