Our story began in 2005 during our sophomore year of high school. We first met while on a weekend trip to Seaside with some of our classmates. In a crowded room with nowhere to sit, Chris walked in and saw all of his friends sitting around Melanie so that was when he decided to go right ahead and sit on her lap. As you would think, that definitely caught her attention and we ended up talking and hung out the rest of the time we were there. We began dating a few months later and that was the beginning of it all.
