How We Met

Our mutual hairdresser introduced us. We both would sit in her chair and talk about.

How They Asked

The backstory of this is that I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s and go on a weekly basis… it’s more a hobby than a grocery store to me. I’m also a bit type A and very hard to surprise, so I never thought he’d be able to totally catch me off guard. I thought we were going on a Friday night to pick up some snacks to have his family over when all of a sudden I heard my favorite Frank Sinatra song “Summer Wind” play over the stereo system. I turned around in the frozen food section and he was on one knee. The employees came out with flowers, he had a friend in there to record, but the BIGGEST surprise of all was that he somehow coordinated my entire family from out to the state to drive up and surprise me in the parking lot when we walked out! I never in a million years expected to see my parents and sisters. It was such a unique proposal, and very “me.” The best part is I get to revisit the spot we got engaged all the time!
