How We Met

We met on Hinge! After talking for a little on the app and via text, our first date was at a local coffee bar in downtown Arlington.

how they asked

Michael planned a whole day together, after asking permission from my parents of course! After a day of breakfast in bed, decorating the Christmas tree, a couples massage, a gift basket of goodies for me and some friends, Michael suggested we go to Saturday night Mass (and of course I couldn’t say no!). He proposed on our walk over the Mass, on the beautiful snowy trail! I was surprised it happened when it did, but I sort of suspected it would happen that day, so it wasn’t a total surprise. I just didn’t think it would be that late in the day when it did it!
