We met through work. For almost 2 years we were working for the same company, in the same group, and even attended some of the same events. However we never crossed paths. In the summer of 2015 we attended the same week-long training in Atlanta, GA and happened to be taking the same class together. On the first day, I was one of the last to arrive and the only open seat was next to Tommy. We got along right away and talked throughout the entire day. The following day, I again was one of the last to arrive, however this time no seats were left. Tommy spotted me and without saying a word to each other, found an empty chair across the room, got the chair and put it right next to him for me to sit. And the rest is history…
It was Labor Day weekend (September 2018) and we were spending the long weekend at home, in Hoboken, NJ. We were on our way to brunch when Tommy detoured me to Castle Point in Steven’s Campus. Castle Point is a special place for us as we often come here together to relax and enjoy the view of NYC. As we were approaching the tip of Castle Point, I noticed someone familiar sitting and waiting for us. That someone was Tommy’s best friend who flew up from Charleston. Realizing who it was, I was completely caught off guard followed by Tommy getting down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Following the proposal, our family and close friends were waiting for us nearby for a celebration. It was one of the best days of our lives.
