Shawn and Anu
How We Met: Shawn and I officially became friends after meeting at a college orientation. We actually ran into each other several times before that but our friendship evolved into something special after that last “running into each other” at LIU.
We started our journey at Iona college because that’s where we both eventually ended up. Long story short, our McDonald dates, late night studying, copying each other’s home works turned into a our love today. We’ve been together officially 8 years before he popped the question.
How He Asked: The day of the proposal he sent me a note that said “are your nails done”, followed by “today I’m proposing, get ready someone special is coming to get you “. My emotions were all over the place, unsure what to wear what to do, I was going crazy.
Finally my childhood friend and my cousin show up to take me on a scavenger hunt. They took me to all the places where Shawn and I started our journey, and each place had a special note for me. The last note told me to meet him at our bridge.. And the rest is, well, the beginning of something amazing.
