Ernesto and Eden
How We Met
Ernesto & I met while working together at Kate Spade New York.
As our interest in each other grew, we pursued a relationship. What started out as playful dating soon bloomed into love.
Over the course of four years we have stood by each other through new cars (& car payments), our first apartment, our first pet, & first household emergencies. We have learned from each other as we grew not only in our relationship, but in our personal lives as well.
How He Asked
On June 12, 2018 Ernesto, with the help of a good friend, took me to see an early showing of Incredibles 2 at Pixar studios. I had been so excited about going, I hadn’t noticed how he had gotten a fresh hair cut or how my friends had insisted I go with them to get my nails done.
After seeing the film in the Pixar theater, we took a tour of the grounds. As we headed towards the parking lot, Ernesto stopped & asked me to take a photo with him next to the Luxo ball & lamp. He told me to look up into the light. I thought he had a funny photo planned. I had no idea that when I turned around I would find him on one knee.
That night, under the iconic Pixar Lamp, Ernesto Jimenez asked me for my hand in marriage. Without hesitation, I told him yes! I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with this man.
