How long have you been together? Just about 2 1/2 years.
How did you meet? He worked with my best friend when they were in high school. I didn't meet my best friend until we were 19, but they found each other on MySpace and she invited him over to our apartment. He says he fell in love immediately, but I was engaged to be married to someone else. My BFF "forgot" to tell him that. LOL
When did you get engaged? Labor Day weekend.
How? We took a weekend trip to L.A. and spent one of the evenings in my favorite place on the planet, the Santa Monica Pier. He was trying to get up the courage all night; considered dinner (my aunt was there and my mother would have been very upset if she was not the witness and my aunt was!), at the end of the pier (too many people), on the beach (too dark). Finally, we were on our way back home when he pulled me up to the top of a building, overlooking the whole pier, beach, Promenade... It was beautiful at 10:30pm. He proposed it the quiet night air, nervous as all hell, with the most gorgeous ring I've ever seen. When we got back in the car, he told me that I had to call my two best friends and let them know that I said yes. Apparently they already knew all of this was happening!
When are you getting married? April 8, 2012.
Would you like to be included on our wedding dates list
? Sure. :)
What is your biggest challenge as a couple? Time. We live apart (for now), my mother is not as independent as she would like to be due to an accident 14 months ago, and his job has a tendency to keep him at work late and come home too tired to drive out to my place. We make it work though. He is amazing and helps me with everything at my mother's house, so we spend a lot of weekends "together" but working our butt's off.
