How We Met

Jon and I met in high school. He played baseball and I played softball. We would often see each other as we were going to practice. We started going on dates at the end of the summer and became girlfriend/ boyfriend on October 23, 2007. I believe our common interests are part of what makes out relationship so great. When we first started dating we would spend our Friday night at the batting cages. We love going to concerts, various sporting events, fishing together, working out, and of course, the beach. Compromise also helps when Vanderpump Rules is on….

How He Asked

During a blizzard this past winter, Jon texted me and said he was booking a tropical vacation. On March 23, 2016, we took a trip to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We arrived much earlier than we expected on our first day, so we were able to enjoy a full beach day. We met a really nice lady on the beach named Abby, who we talked to for quite some time. The second day of our vacation, we got up nice and early, ate a delicious breakfast full of churros and mimosas, and headed to the beach. We spent the entire day on the beach and finally headed back to the room around 5 to get ready for our dinner reservations. On our way to dinner, Jon suggested we take a photo in a gazebo that he noticed earlier that day. As we were walking to the gazebo, we ran into Abby from earlier that day. As I started to walk ahead of Jon, he motioned to Abby that he was going to propose. In the middle of taking a picture, Jon got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, and of course I said yes.

We spent the rest of our vacation exploring Cozumel, eating authentic Mexican food, and soaking up some rays.
