We met while working on the late shifts at Jimmy John's and became good friends immediately. As we spent almost every day together at work (and often outside of work), our feelings for each other began to grow. Finally, on New Year's Eve, we closed the store and went out as a group to ring in 2019, and Phil asked me on a date! Though we'd been out plenty of times before that, we decided to have our first official date on Saturday, January 5th, 2019 ♥️
I love astronomy and star-gazing, so Phil organized a trip for both of us (and a friend, to catch the moment on camera!) to spend several days hiking and nights stargazing in Okefenokee swamp, where the stars are the brightest in the state! On one of our hikes, Phil tugged me to a stop and got down on one knee! Of course I said yes! We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you. See you in October!
