Daniella and Sharisse
How We Met
Sharisse’s cousin tried to set up a date for a few months. We both weren’t looking, so we kept blowing it off. One day she convinced me to stop by the restaurant she bar tended at after I got out of work. It was late, I was gross and all I wanted was pizza. When I walked in, Sharisse was there! She knew I was coming. I was pleasantly surprised while I was wearing my, “Pizza, pizza, pizza” shirt. She ordered meatballs, a meat plate and I’m a vegetarian. Needless to say, we ended up hitting it off!
How She Asked
We just recently bought a house in the Catskills. Before we closed on the house, I contacted the previous owners to ask if we could spend a night there. I didn’t tell Sharisse where we were going. We arrived to the house around 3 am because, she worked late. She was scared of the darkness and woods!
To calm her down, I told her to have a glass of wine. By the time we settled in it was daylight and our dogs needed to be walked. I had this elaborate plan which involved breakfast the next day, and the dogs in bow-ties. However it felt like this was the moment and I couldn’t wait.
So, as we were walking the dogs in front of the house, I found the perfect opportunity to propose with our wine, my iPhone, the ring and our dogs in hand!
