Holly and Mario
How We Met
Mario and I met through a mutual friend in college. Mario ended up transferring to a school in Rockford, Illinois while I stayed in sunny Fort Myers and we started our long distance relationship. I spent any spare time I had traveling to Rockford and we spent every moment together when he was home for the holidays. We have been living in the same city now for two years and we are loving every second of it.
How He Asked
Mario surprised me with a trip to his home town of San Francisco (it was so much of a surprise that I didn’t know where we were going until we walked up ito the gate at Orlando airport.) I thought that a vacation was the biggest surprise that would happen that week – boy was I wrong. The surprises kept coming! From a hotel room right below the Golden Gate Bridge to tickets to see Ed Sheeran, it was shaping out to be the best week of my life….and then it happened. Mario wanted to show me the best view of the city – we climbed up Slacker Hill and I got ready to pose for a picture. When I turned around I saw Mario on one knee and couldn’t say yes fast enough. It was easily the best moment of my life!
