how we met
John & I found ourselves in the same circle of friends in high school, and started dating in our last year.
how they asked
John proposed on December 18 (unbeknownst to him, the same date my parents were engaged, just 31 years earlier!). We had both taken the day off work to spend time together before the Christmas vacation rush. We made a delicious breakfast at home and treated ourselves to massages. We visited the Christmas Market in Toronto’s Distillery District that evening and he proposed at the front door when we returned home, with a bottle of champagne waiting for us inside! I was totally surprised in the moment!
