Estee and Kevin
How We Met
The first time Kevin and I ever met was in 2009. We were both in other relationships at the time. We both worked for the same company at the time, and had worked with mutual people. I moved to Tamarac, and just so happen to shop at the store that he worked at 3 years later…He would always seek me out and talk to me every time i came in. I always referred to him as the cute guy at the grocery store. In 2012, when i got promoted. I was sent to take his position at his store, as he got a promotion as well. He gave me his phone number and told me if i had any questions about my new position to call him. It was from that moment, that we were always in touch. The first night we hung out, outside of work was magical! We went to a country bar, danced all night long, and it ended with a kiss. We started dating, fell in love, and here we are 4 years later.
How He Asked
On December 27, 2016 I was getting off work and heading to his parents house for a family gathering. We were all standing in front of the tree taking photos when suddenly Kevin said he wanted to make a toast to me. I was a little surprised, but given it was the holidays and we were all drinking champagne i did not really think twice about it. He reached for something behind me (which i thought was his champagne glass) but then when i looked, he was down on one knee with a little black box. He opened it, said a few words and asked me if i would marry him. I immediately started crying and said YES of course. The whole family was there to witness it which was beautiful. We are so happy, and excited to start planning a wedding and start this journey of life together as one.
