How We Met

Ryan and I met on accident working for the same company. I was out of the gym for several weeks in 2016 and had a lot of cramping because of the lack of exercise. I actually felt like my chest (sternum) needed to crack, like your knuckles do (I can’t make this up). It was really bad this particular day so I went to our onsite nurse to see if he knew any tricks. He insisted I ask this guy Ryan, which I naturally refused because of the circumstances. After about five minutes of arguing I went to this guys office, and was glad I did!

How They Asked

We had been together for 2 and a half years and been talking about the next step. My birthday is June 15, so he had planned a dinner at our favorite winery, which was not suspicious at all. I was actually convinced ahead of time it wasn’t happening. Apparently he had gone to my parents weeks before to ask for their blessing, and then enlisted the help of my sisters on the day of to have them carry the ring that day, since we had plans before dinner. We actually went to the zoo and then over to his cousins house, which was not planned! We headed to meet my family for dinner and they had balloons in hand, again not weird because it was my birthday. When we got inside, we started taking photos, only Ryan turned to look at me instead of the camera. He got down on one knee and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever answered!
