Kayla and Sean
How We Met
We started working together at a nanotechnology lab when I was 16 years old. We both went to the same high school and grew up in the same hometown. I asked him on a date and we went out to a local ice cream store and movie theater. We’ve been together for close to 9 years now- sticking through high school diplomas, bachelors, and masters degrees, multiple apartments across Boston, and even a 6 month long distance relationship, while I lived in Quito, Ecuador. We’ve traveled to over 25 different countries together and are looking forward to a honeymoon in Tanzania! Pictured below is us at my senior prom, us in front of the Eiffel Tower (New Years Eve 2015), and a recent shot from when we walked the Great Wall of China!
How He Asked
After learning about Ancient Egyptian history in the fourth grade, it has been my dream to visit Egypt to see the temples and pyramids. When I was in college, I finally had my chance to go on a university trip, but it was cancelled due to the revolution. For my birthday, my boyfriend of 9 years, Sean, bought me plane tickets to Egypt. The second day we were there, we went to visit the pyramids and sphinx. We rode camels out to the middle of the desert and he asked if we could get down to take pictures. He proposed to me in front of the pyramids and it could not have been more amazing!
