How We Met

We met in 2013 through Match.com. He was my third date, I was his thirtieth, but we instantly sparked.

We had talked about getting engaged for months, but we bought a house in April, which set us back financially. I hoped he would ask after the new year.

How He Asked

We planned to go to Longwood Gardens and my favorite restaurant, Terrain, as our Christmas gift. I spotted a lovely pergola and suggested we ask a passerby to take our photo. As we posed, Chris turned and I spotted the box he was pulling out of his pocket. I couldn’t believe it and asked if this was really happening. My state of shock was so great, the onlookers taking our photo had to prompt me, asking “is it a yes?”. My tearful response: of course!
