How We Met…

Mike and I grew up in the same town in New Jersey and went through the same school system since Kindergarten. There are a lot of serendipitous moments in our 9 years together, one of them being that we were in the same kindergarten class and one day when my mom and I were looking through old pictures, we happen to be sitting next to each other in one.

In high school, we grew a lot closer and became best friends quickly. Then came a time when he would randomly give me butterflies and we both realized there was something more there. We started dating the summer after junior year of high school, and it’s been laughs and smiles ever since. We didn’t go to college together but stayed together and four years of long-distance was not easy.

How They Asked

One day, Mike told me we would be going on a surprise trip and I should pack a weekend bag. He kept giving me little hints (I was obviously losing my mind and wanted to know where we were going so badly), but some of his hints were intentionally false so that I was thrown off and couldn’t guess. On July 10th, we got to the airport and I found out we were going to my favorite place, Paris.
