Michelle and Jamie
How We Met
I met Jamie a few years ago when I first started as a political reporter in Washington, D.C. and we worked in the same newsroom. We shared a really small office with each other. He would regularly debate and challenge me on every hot-button political issue in the news. We didn’t always agree, but every time we debated I learned something new about him and about the world. I fell in love with his mind. I fell in love with his heart. I fell in love with him.
How He Asked
I went to Los Angeles to visit my family and to take a break from all of the presidential election coverage. Jamie flew into Los Angeles and arranged for us to take a helicopter to Malibu. We flew to a mountain overlooking the ocean. There was a picnic set up with champagne and desserts. When we got off the helicopter he got down on his knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Afterwards he surprised me with dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel. When I arrived, both of our families were there to congratulate us.
