How We Met
We met like many millennials these days, through the internet. Bumble to be exact. Our first date was the day before Thanksgiving in 2017. He had a steak, and I had the shrimp. Ironically the very same thing we’d end up having the night he proposed. I guess you can say we’re creatures of habit.
How They Asked
After a day at the aquarium, Daniel was taking me to dinner but the location was a surprise. As we were walking to our surprise destination, he stopped in the middle of Canal St. by the old trolleys and in front of my favorite gelato spot from when I lived in Europe. He pulled me close, told me he had a gift for me, then got down on one knee.
He told me how much he loved me and with his eyes welling up, asked if I would marry him, then pulled out a custom shell box made to represent all our walks on beaches around the world. With happy tears falling I said yes. Then he told me he chose March 12th as the day to ask me as it would have been my grandfather’s 99th birthday. Then came round 2 of tears. It truly was the most surreal and joyest moment of our lives.
