How We Met
Nick and I met when we were in college and just celebrated four wonderful years together in September. For our very first date, we’d gone to a local Ben & Jerry’s and every year on our anniversary we celebrated by going to the same Ben & Jerry’s!
How They Asked
On a sunny Sunday morning in November, we were out at breakfast and I could tell he was a little fidgety. He out of the blue suggested going to our Ben & Jerry’s post-breakfast, which I thought was a little odd, but we are clearly huge ice cream fans so I could understand his sudden craving. We pulled up outside the store and it looked like they were closed, but he insisted they were open. We got out of the car and as we were about to walk into the store, he took my hands and looked at me, tears in his eyes. Seconds later he was down on one knee and I had tears in my eyes as well.
He asked me to marry him and I was so happy I could only nod as he put a ring on my finger. Inside Ben & Jerry’s were both our families, and we celebrated with them with ice cream in champagne flutes. I couldn’t have imagined a better day! And you better believe we will be serving Ben & Jerry’s at our wedding!
