How We Met
We met on Bumble!
How They Asked
The real story: I knew he was going to be proposing that day but didn’t know how. My best friend and sister took me all around to distract me (brunch, shopping, biergarten), meanwhile I was trying to suss out the details from them. After dinner (which we *had* to finish at 7:55pm), we walked around the block to my apartment and paused outside. They were stalling me. I looked up and saw a head peak out from my roof. It all clicked. They escorted me just up to the staircase that led to the roof, hugged me and had me go upstairs on my own. I completely blacked out everything he said but he stood in front of me (so cute with a white button down- which he knows is my favorite outfit on him… i blame 90s boybands for my white button down fetish), the skyline at exactly sunset behind him and wept. It was so quiet and still and perfect up there. Just us. After I said yes, I called for my sister, my best friend and her husband to come up –and we recreated the proposal so they could take photos for the insta.
The story that might sound better: I’m a sucker for twinkle lights *and* Astoria so it was completely apropos that Andrew set up string lights and flowers at sunset on our apartment’s roof in Astoria. We toasted champagne with my best friend and sister who were there to get me at the roof at exactly 8pm (sunset time) that day. It was perfect!
