Our First Date

8.9.2012

The very first time we hung out one-on-one was on a random summer afternoon in 2012. After texting and getting to know each other for a couple weeks, I decided to pay him a surprise visit after hearing he was having a bad day. On my bad days, I usually get my favorite food and drinks to cheer myself up. So to comfort him, I brought two of my favorite things - a McDouble with mac sauce (no pickles) and a Red Gummy smoothie from Jamba Juice. I'm pretty sure this is when he fell in love with me since these ended up being two of his go-to things as well. We sat at that park and talked for hours. And thus began our love story...

The Proposal

8.9.2020

8 years to the day after our first date is when I popped the question. I'd been wanting to do it for awhile, but I waited for the perfect timing. After getting her family's blessing and consulting friends on the details, I decided to propose in a way that would catch her off guard. I asked a friend of mine to set up a "practice photoshoot" to capture our special moment at a park, just like our very first date. I honestly forgot everything I said to her but I will never forget the moment she said "yes!"
