We met in 2008 at the local Jewel-Osco where we both worked. We started off as friends until we noticed we got a little to excited when we worked the same shift. We would see each other in the break room, or just intentionally walking down the same aisle. This lasted for a few months until we decided to go on our first date. We shared one order of the orange chicken lunch special from Rice Garden, watched a movie and got to know each other better
We continued to go on dates until we decided to become official in March of 2009. He escorted me to my senior prom that May. Fast forward 8 years later and we welcomed our 1st child together our beautiful baby girl Aria.
For her 3rd birthday we took family pictures at Garfield Park Conservatory. Our photographer captured the moment he got down on one knee and with the help of our daughter he asked me to marry him. The best part of all of this is he arranged for both our families to be present and I had no clue. They were standing behind us the entire time and witnessed such a beautiful moment.
