Mark and I met on Match.com in 2014. Initially Mark had messaged me the year prior and I did not respond. Mark tried his luck one more time and that is where our story begins.
On our first date we went to Jerry Remy's in the Seaport. We had a few drinks and an appetizer and went to a bar across the street. We talked for over 5 hours and Mark called me the next morning to wish me good luck in my soccer game. I loved that he paid attention to what I said and made the effort to call the next morning.
On April 22, 2017 we hosted a birthday party at our house for our goldendoodle Chesney who was turning 2 years old. Our family, my Mom, Dad, Mark's Mom and Joe, and our close friends, Tara, Rich, Cam, Elsie and Tom (Tom Tom) were all over to celebrate Chesney's birthday. During this time Mark was acting a little off and I asked him to stop acting weird. Little did I know that on top of celebrating Chesney, we would also be getting engaged.
Mark provided a great 7-8 minute speech followed by getting on one knee and asking me to be his wife!
