We met for the first time at Panera Bread for lunch after talking on the phone for about a week. We sat there for hours talking and actually forgot that we had to return to work from lunch!! There was instant connection and we were both curious to see what happened from there!!
After a year of on again and off again dating, we finally reconnected back in Winter 2020. We picked right up where we left off. Spent more time together and truly tried to mentally connect. We became closer and closer and were soon inseparable!! We knew by Spring 2021 that we were meant to be. The love that we have for one another is like nothing we've ever felt before!!! It really took us by surprise. By Winter 2021, after coming back from a trip to the DR, we attended a birthday party for a cousin. All of the family were there and by the end of the night; with permission from the host, Eric was down on one knee proposing in front of the crowd!! We still periodically watch the video and get emotional.
