How We Met
We were both working an awful retail job. We worked together almost two years without even socializing. We were both in serious relationships at the time but I thought he was cute so I made jokes to other coworkers that he was my “boyfriend” and I’d marry him someday. We both ended up broken up with, and I was about to quit the retail job. A mutual coworker texted me that he thought I was cute one night so we began texting. I was terrified to date again so he waited around for 6 months until I was ready.
how they asked
My birthday was coming up on December 12. Kris planned a trip to Sedona as a birthday gift. He planned our entire weekend and we went hiking the first morning. I always made jokes that he’s “not allowed to break up with me.” We found an incredible view and he told me I wasn’t allowed to break up with him, then got down on one knee. It took me a minute to realize what was happening and I still can’t wipe the huge grin off my face.
