We met through mutual friends back in February 2021 while Thomas was on a trip with his friends in Scottsdale and Nikki was in San Luis Obispo on a girls trip. Texting then led to a four hour first date in Burlingame and we have talked everyday since. We spent almost every weekend together for a year driving back and forth from the valley to San Mateo.
On the anniversary of when we first met, we went back to our old stomping grounds to do karaoke with friends. When "I'd Do Anything for Love" came on, we ran up to the front. When the music suddenly died down, I looked over and he was down on one knee. I screamed, shouted "YES," and we were engaged. We're so excited to celebrate this next chapter in our lives with you. See you in San Fran!
