We met at a tattoo shop in 2012 and quickly became best friends, bonding over a mutual obsession with penguins. This friendship resulted in many weird, random and amazing adventures before life put us on different paths, only to bring us back together five years later.
Prior to our date Michael stopped at the local grocery store to pick something up. He surprised me with sunflowers and I surprised him with tamales that I had bought in the parking lot while waiting outside for him to return. We then went on an adventure for pie and cocoa.
This happened shorty after our first date, Michael asked me to marry him while walking up the flights of stairs to my apartment. It was absolutely random and took me off guard but I obviously said yes! We have planned to elope on June 19, 2021 and will be planning a small ceremony and exchange of vows for June 2022.
