How We Met: Pat & I met in college at the University of Connecticut but remained acquaintances until years later when we both graduated and move to New York City.
Within a few months we bumped into each other on multiple occasions and eventually Pat built up the courage to ask for my number.
A casual drink led to a memorable date, and year after year of summers anywhere nautical and winters anywhere skiing, we knew there was no looking back.
how they asked: We were together for 5 years and had just moved in together. After getting settled into our new home in NYC, on May 18, 2013 went out to dinner to celebrate.
Pat proposed that night back at our apartment and after we finished making phone calls to all our family, there was a knock at the door.
I will never forget that exact moment when I opened the door and saw both of our families, who had travel from near and far, standing there before us to celebrate.
It was perfection.
