How We Met

I met Curtis in 2015 when I started working at a residential treatment program for youth. He came to my aide during a crisis and that is how we first met. I spent the next year watching him interact with children who have trauma backgrounds, mental health issues, and disabilities with kindness and compassion. Our first date was to the beach which required spending over 3 hours in the car together and a full day of hanging out while barely knowing each other (slightly ambitious). We talked with ease the entire time and have been together ever since!

How They Asked

Curtis proposed in front of our family and friends at my 30th birthday celebration.

The party was Harry Potter themed and we were both in costumes. I went to blow the candles out on my cake and when I turned around he was on one knee!
