how we met
A mutual friend introduced us while we were both in Vegas during March Madness in 2017. He lived in Chicago and I lived in Texas at the time, so we developed a friendship that turned into a long distance relationship for 2.5 years. In July of 2019 I moved to Chicago in order to grow our relationship even more.
how they asked
Nick had planned our trip to Cabo for my 30th birthday on January 29th, 2020. I had made reservations at my favorite restaurants for every night we were there except the first night, he was planning a birthday surprise. He told me to be ready at 7:30 and then walked me to our own private table outside our home overlooking the ocean, surrounded by rose petals and candles. Each course was already planned with my favorite foods. I remember crying as we sat down because of how romantic and special he had made my birthday. He excused himself after the main course and came back with a huge cake singing me happy birthday. As I closed my eyes to make a wish he got down on one knee. I opened my eyes and saw him there holding the ring, he asked and then actual fireworks started going off. I was in complete shock and had no idea it was coming. It was the most beautiful and romantic night of my life.
