How We Met
Janco and I first met in 2011 when we were students at Bentley University. We dated all through our time there, although none of our friends thought we’d make it past 6 months (they changed their minds now)! We entered the real world hand in hand and moved in together for the first time in the Boston Seaport. A year in we adopted our adorable pup aptly named Bentley who we would take on many strolls along the Boston Harbor.
How They Asked
Janco was insistent that we take a family walk on a chilly New England afternoon. Being a huge patriots fan and less of a fan of the cold – I did NOT want to go. He wanted to walk to our old stomping grounds in the Boston Seaport and got me there by saying I could stop in at my favorite store (hi it’s for now!) As we were walking along the harbor he was a few steps behind, he called my name and when I turned to my utter shock he was down on a knee in the snow!
It was so special to be in our favorite place, the first place we lived together and the place we took many walks with Bentley on when we first brought him home! Even more surprising was that Janco had arranged for two awesome photographers to capture the whole thing: even capturing us putting the ring on the wrong hand which they politely told us after we celebrated for a while!
The ring was even more special – he had picked it out and gotten it set while we were on vacation in South Africa (where he and his family are from) while we were there a few weeks before without me knowing at all (thanks to his fam!).
