How We Met

We met at a mutual friend’s Christmas party in Larkspur in 2010. We went on our first date at Lands End on 12/26/2010. We hung out nonstop as Thomas was due to go back to Boulder, CO for college on the 9th. We made it official on 7/7/2011! We had a long distance relationship for two years –I was still finishing my senior year in high school and then went to Evergreen in the fall of 2011. In the fall of 2012, Thomas joined me in Olympia, Washington. We graduated from Evergreen during the winter semester of 2014 and moved back to the Bay Area. Fast forward a few years, on 8/3/2019, we brought Cooper, our black Labrador, home! He is the love of our lives! Honestly, he couldn’t have come at a better time in our lives, just before all heck broke loose with this pandemic! He gets us out of the house, he makes us smile/laugh, he’s pure entertainment! After living in an apartment with a 90lbs dog during a pandemic, we felt it was unfair to him, so we started doing our research to buy a home of our own and closed a few months later!

How They Asked

On 12/26/20, Thomas grabbed a bottle of Gloria Ferrer and got down on one knee at our home and did an intimate proposal on the 10 years anniversary since our first date! It was everything I could have imagined. Just the two of us with Cooper in our home. We now are planning to get married in our backyard on June 4, 2022!
