7 years ago during our college years we met at a party at a mutual high school friends house. Flash forward to the present… we live together in Long Beach, NY –the city by the sea that we had long talked about moving to. The morning of, we had all of our friends and family over for the Polar Bear Plunge for the make a wish foundation. After our crew trekked to Riverside beach, we got ready to brave the cold and jump into the freezing ocean, but Derek stopped to make a speech. He thanked our friends and family for getting ready to take the polar bear plunge, and then he suddenly got down on one knee to ask if I would take “the plunge” with him. I was in complete shock! It was such a perfect moment, in our favorite place, with our favorite people, on the BLVD where we signed our lease to live in our favorite place. We plan to get married on the beach next year :-)
