How we met

Remember when the world was ending?

We certainly do, it was the beginning of 2020, and Jake and I were both struggling to make ends meet during the MOST uncertain time of our lives. Ariel was living in Lancaster, working as a server and an artist on the side. Jake was a chef who had been working on opening a restaurant for a local company but had been basically halted due to the pandemic. After meeting, we found solace in each other's company and had SO much in common. We helped each other navigate these unsteady times, and eventually moved in together, bought our house, and of course, got engaged!
