We met on Taylor's first day at the Boston Foundation, shaking hands awkwardly in the accounting department. At the start, we were both unsure if the other was just a super friendly coworker. Now we know, Taylor would plan her lunch around when Chris was eating ("filling up her water bottle" to check if he was already in the lunchroom) and Chris was checking the kitchen for leftovers as an excuse to tell Taylor to walk by his desk.
We fell in love all around Boston. Our first date was at TD Garden when Chris won a raffle for Celtics tickets. We had picnics in the Boston Gardens during TBF lunches, and said "I love you" for the first time underground at Park Street station as the green line squealed by. We met each others' parents at Park Street Church and at Giacomos in the South End (rip), and made up silly names for the penguins at the aquarium on one of our first dates. Chris planned to propose in Boston as a tribute to all those small moments that we fell in love throughout this city. He picked a spot we sat in and walked past countless times, and a spot we can continue to visit and love for the rest of our lives. The creators of Banangrams get a shout out for Chris' sweet proposal. We are so excited to celebrate the last day of our engagement and the first day of our marriage with you next July! <3
