How we met
Andrew and I first met at happy hour at a local bar! I was about to order a drink with my friend when I looked down the bar and noticed a guy sitting by himself watching a baseball game on his phone, while a group of his friends were chatting and having a good time. I went up to him and said “are you really watching a baseball game on your phone in the middle of the bar?”. He looked up very quick and said “yup” and proceeded to watch the game. I gave my friend a look and went back to ordering a drink. After a minute or two (there must have been a break in the game!) he got up and came over and said “I’m sorry. That was rude. Can I buy you and your friend a drink?”. We all took a shot, he paid, and then walked away to join his group of friends. After giving my friend another look, I marched back up to him, confused and said “You’re just going to buy us a drink and walk away?” and he replied “I wanted to see if you just wanted a free drink or if you actually wanted to talk to me. I’m Andrew” *and reached out his hand*. We proceeded to talk and exchange numbers that night, and went out to dinner on our first “real date” a few days later!
how they asked
Andrew and I went back to Baltimore (where we first said I love you!) with 2 of our best friends for a long weekend to go see a few Orioles’ baseball games and just have a small getaway. On our way there, Andrew drove an hour and a half out of the way (and this is a drive he has done dozens of times) because he was nervous and his mind was elsewhere! When we finally did make it to Baltimore, Andrew insisted we show our friends the view of the city since it was their first time there. We walked to the top of Federal Hill in Baltimore which is very scenic and overlooks the entire city and inner harbor. As we were looking out over the city, our friends dropped back and Andrew got down on one knee and proposed! I was totally surprised and of course said yes.
