KT and Jordan
How We Met
It was September 2013 and the University of Michigan had a huge football game. Jordan, then senior captain of the basketball team, was hosting a pep rally in the center of campus, “the diag”, for the game. I was a senior dance performance major and was in attendance to catch a glimpse of a university commercial I was in that was set to air during the rally. I never did get to see that commercial, but it was no coincidence that this cupcake lover met Jordan just after the rally with a cupcake in his hand! We were inseparable for the rest of that year and went on to graduate from Michigan together.
How He Asked
In the fall of 2015, Jordan & I moved to France together where Jordan joined a new professional basketball team. Shortly after we arrived, Jordan suggested we take a weekend trip to Paris since I had never been. During the trip we explored the city of love and had a new and exciting experience together. Jordan told me on Saturday night to get dressed up for a fancy dinner with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower. While walking from the hotel to dinner, I asked Jordan to take a photo of me right in front of the Eiffel Tower. After taking the photo, Jordan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said YES!
