How We Met

Alex and I met online through a dating website in 2014, after him returning from his deployment from Afghanistan and myself finishing nursing school. Our first date was at the Grey Goose Cafe in Southport, CT and from the moment I met him, I knew he was the one that I wanted to spend forever with. Our relationship grew, we now have a house and puppy together.

How He Asked

For my birthday this year he wanted to treat me to dinner at the Grey Goose again, which I obviously was all for! So I got all dressed up like I usually do because it’s a beautiful restaurant. Alex actually got dress up as well, which is not usually like him. As we entered the door we were greeted by a man, who immediately found us a private table secluded from all others that were sitting outside. We both sat down and were handed a menu. I opened up the menu to find the center part with Alex’s writing, which were filled with choices such as “Scout Sundae, Ok Cupid Calamari, Greenfield Ave Mesclun Salad and Lobster Tails of Courage.”

But at the very end, were four words that I always dreamt of hearing and seeing, Will You Marry Me?!?! As I turn over to him, he’s down on one knee, with the most gorgeous ring I’ve ever laid my eyes on!

And of course my answer was Yes!
