How We Met

I met Vinny at a surprise Cinco De Mayo themed birthday party. He walked in with the birthday boy who wasn’t the only one who was surprised. I knew from the second I saw him I had to met him. It was my aunt who introduced us, very awkwardly and uncomfortably, the way only family can. He asked for my number and the rest was history.

How He Asked

My best friends from Long Island picked September 13th, 2 months in advance for our annual Apple picking event. We do it every year at pennings farm.  I thought to make it extra special this year I would make 20+ home made pie crusts so we could all come back to my house after Apple picking and make homemade mini Apple pies. Little did I know everyone else had a different plan in mind. We made our way to the orchard but for some reason Vinny decided to drive up to the top of the orchard after the guys working there said no he couldn’t drive up. He seemed up to something. We got to the top of the orchard with only my friends/ family’s cars (3 in a huge empty parking lot!) As we started walking down one isle of the orchard Vinny dissapeared and no one was picking any apples. I turn the corner to the next isle of apples and there it is. Strings of our pictures and importat dates hung from one tree to the other leading me up to Vinny who was waiting for me on 1 knee. Our song was playing as I made my way up to him, the one” by Kodaline.
