It was late 2018, when Bri started working at a sports bar with no experience. Given a heads-up about the tall, blonde, (also) queer and mean server that would be training them, it was no surprise that Christina released a sassy eye-roll when she came in and found out she’d be training someone. Having spent weekly shifts together, they became really good friends and when the opportunity presented itself, Christina (drunkingly) professed her feelings for Bri while out at a Yankees game. To her surprise, or not, Bri shared theirs for her. Christina and Bri quickly began hanging out and were soon inseparable, solidifying their relationship in August of 2019. Vacations and weekend trips, parties and nights-out, working together and all - the two also faced some challenges. What they say is true, it could be the right person at the wrong time. The tale of two lovers, facing time and challenges neither could handle, they went three years into their respective lives without one another. One thing remained true, Christina and Bri were always connected. As time continued, they each grew into themselves, learning the lessons of love, life and loss. In late March 2023, Bri uncertainly agreed to meet with Christina (thanks to her big-brother) and the moment the two locked eyes again and their flames reunited, they both knew their story never ended. Yes it’s true, things moved quickly, but both felt true that the universe aligns when we stand in the midst of our forever paths. I guess it’s a story of cliches, because when you know, you just know. On November 4, 2023, Bri, after being very adamant about hiking before the “season ended,” despite never having hiked much before, recreated one of their favorite scenes from their favorite show, and asked Christina to marry them off the path, just before the summit of East Rock Park.
