Who knew a first date could last 8 hours and consist of talking about our favorite interior paint colors, looking for a candle that smelled like fresh cut grass, spontaneous half-off bowling, and planning to see each other for the next 5 consecutive days.
July 30th of 2022 we picked up my engagement ring, go out to lunch to celebrate, and get engaged in the restaurant parking lot! If you know us, Ben and I are not big extravagant people so the parking lot of The Copper Door in Salem, NH was the perfect spot to get engaged. We may not have had a camera man there to capture the moment, but we did get a standing ovation from a guy in the parking lot screaming, "Congrats!". We wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
