How We Met
Kevin and I were set up by some friends. We met for the first time at TD Garden and our first date was a Bruins game. After our first date, I knew there was something different about him. We had a great date and spent hours after the game talking. I couldn’t wait for him to ask me out for a second date!
how they asked
Kevin and I had planned to go to Key West while we were vacationing in Florida. I had never been and he said we just had to go! We planned to go to dinner and then get on a boat to watch the sunset and fireworks since it was July 4th. He told me we had to dress up for dinner and drove us to this beach. He was furiously texting and then he got a phone call that he ended very abruptly. I asked Kevin where we were going to dinner and he said he had to text his mom back. So we stood there for a few minutes while I wondered what was going on.
We started walking in the sand and the farther we walked the more confused I was getting. All of a sudden Kevin squeezed my hand and then he pulled me in front of him. His voice was a little shaky but he told me how much he loved me and how he dreamed of starting a family with me. He said everything I needed to hear. When he bent down on one knee I said “Yes! Of course! Yes!!” So we were kissing and hugging and all these people in the water started cheering for us which was so funny because I had forgotten they were even there. While Kevin put the ring on my finger I saw someone taking a picture of us and I thought “that’s a little strange” but decided to ignore it because we were ENGAGED!! I was giddy. Then Kevin hugged me and said, “if you look over your shoulder, there’s a photographer, so stop crying because we are going to go take more pictures with her.” It was such a beautiful and perfect day. I will remember it for the rest of my life.
