How We Met
Kevin & I have been best friends since the day we met in 8th grade. Although we were never romantically involved, we have always been a large part of each other’s lives through high school and college. He is the funniest, most caring man I know and I cannot believe it took me 9 years to realize he was the man of my dream (better late than never, right?). We began dating in the summer of 2015, while I was living in our hometown of Green Bay, WI and he was working in Minneapolis, MN. We have spent every weekend since traveling between the two cities to spend our weekends together… crazy what two people in love will do to be together!
how they asked
We were on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with BOTH of our families- parents, siblings, nieces and nephews- quite the crowd! The first few days of our trip were amazing –filled with R&R, and a few too many margaritas, but they did not compare to what was yet to come.
I had gotten ready for the evening on that special Tuesday and Kevin had told me to come up to his room and grab him before heading out to dinner. I walked into the room expecting nothing special, and to my surprise, he called out to the balcony, where he was waiting ready to ask me to be his wife! It was the most imperfectly perfect proposal- I said “yes” before he could even finish saying the words he had to carefully prepared.
After we joined our families for a surprise celebration party, complete with a mariachi band band. It was the most special day of my life and I will never forget it!
