how we met
We worked together in customer service at a tech start up in Schenectady NY.
how they asked
We had a pretty crazy summer so missed our usual anniversary date night so decided on 9/21 to celebrate. As luck would have it Marissa would get a bad cold that week and was a bit feverish that night. Alex made dinner (Mac & cheese) and gave a couple belated anniversary gifts. The last was a 5 year daily question journal where he changed the daily question to “will you marry me”. Of course Marissa said yes! Marissa did have an idea it was coming when her dad accidentally mentioned getting dinner with Alex that she didn’t know was happening. As a daddy’s girl she could tell he was getting his blessing.
