how we met

Alina and I met at North Central College in Naperville. We have been together for 5 years. The geographical path of our relationship has been far stretching, but our beginnings were in Naperville. Our first date was at Giordano’s on May 28th, 2010, and I knew that night that I never wanted to be with another girl.

how he asked

Mike was very thoughtful and created a nice scavenger hunt for Alina. She woke up yesterday with a flower and a note attached to it.

The first note led her to a nail appointment at Michael Graham Spa. At the end of her spa time, she received a second clue that said, “Now that your nails look great, go have a slice where we had our first date”.

At Giordano‚Äôs they were waiting for Alina’s arrival and prepared a special heart shaped pizza. After finishing her meal she received a third clue that said, “I hope you’re ready for a fun week, head to the place you first kissed me on the cheek”.

The last and final note to Alina was, “What happens next, you’ll love to know, meet me by the fountain/gazebo.”
