On July 26, 2021, we flew to Maui for a family vacation. Michael proposed to me somewhere over the Pacific Ocean just before our plane was due to land. We couldn't get married on 7/26, so 8/26 it is!

How We Met

We're a match!

We're one of the lucky couples! We met in January 2016 on Michael posted his profile picture upside down. I swore it was a mistake, but he swore it was the best trick ever to get noticed! Upside down or not, I was immediately attracted to him. As profiles require, we each outlined who we are, what we like, what we don't like, and what we're searching for in a partner. I learned how much he loves adventure, trying new things, scuba diving, catching fresh seafood by spear fishing, camping, and sharing experiences with others. He learned I love the outdoors, the ocean, camping, relaxing at home, cats, crafting and needlecrafts. When he called me for the first time, he asked if it was too soon to let me know he won't be doing any needlecrafts. I asked if it was too soon to let him know I'm not a big fan of seafood. We have been inseparable ever since.
