How We Met
We met 9.5 years ago in 2006. We had a mutual friend and just hit it off. We actually started talking on MySpace, which is so weird to think about! We’ve dated for 9.5 years and now we’ve been engaged for about two weeks :)
how they asked
Chris planned an NYC trip on Sunday, September 20th. We love going to museums so he suggested the Museum of Natural History and I, of course, agreed. We went through the museum pretty quickly and decided to leave and explore some more. We sat on the steps outside the museum and he said he had an early Christmas gift for me. He reaches in his pocket (my heart began racing) and he pulls out an NYC zoo membership pass that he bought me so we can have access to all 5 zoos in the city! We love zoos so this was an amazing gift. He also promptly said “no I’m not proposing.” So then we went to the Central Park Zoo, saw all the animals, and decided to take a walk through Central Park. Now his original plan was to see one of the only waterfalls in Central Park and propose at the bottom it… but when we got there, there were a lot of people present so he had to go to plan b. He started taking me on a hidden walking path, where no one was in sight. Just as I was about to get cranky from the heat and walking so much, he stopped walking, turned around, looked at me and said “Hi Meg..so…” with tears in his eyes. I stopped in my tracks and realized what was about to happen. I started beaming with happiness when he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. Shortly after, he told me we had reservations at the Rockefeller Cafe and that both our families knew for quite some time. We’re so unbelievably happy.
