How we met
For the longest time, I never thought I would get married. I had pretty bad experiences with boyfriends and boys in general in my past and was not even looking to settle down, when I met my now fiance, Alex. I was in my sophmore year of college at SUNY Brockport, when one day I was going through my Facebook friends and noticed I was friends with a guy at Brockport who had the same last name as me! I immediately asked my mom about it and said she didn't think there was any relation so I decided to message him. We messaged eachother back and forth several times and found that suprisingly although we did have the same last name, we were not related. Not long after this, he invited me to a party that he was having at his house. We found out we had a lot in common and that we had actually grown up only minutes away from eachother in the suburbs of Buffalo (Weird!) We hit it off immediately and have been together ever since! Alex is two years older than me, so when he graduated from Brockport, he moved to Rochester for work. It was definitely tough on our relationship at times being apart but looking back on it, I know it has just made us stronger as a couple. Once I graduated from Brockport, I moved back to Buffalo to go to graduate school and Alex got a job in Buffalo so he moved back too (Yay!)
This picture was taken on our "1 month anniversary" in my dorm room at Brockport.
We had just come back from a family get together and Alex said that he was going to check our Buffalo Bills tickets for the following day. He was fumbling around in his drawer when he told me that we should probably get the wine that I had brought that was in the car because there was a lot to celebrate. Totally oblivious I replied with "Like what?" He mentioned how the Buffalo Sabres had won both of their games (We are both HUGE Sabres fans) and how we were going to the Bills game the next day (HUGE Bills fans as well). He then said "And there's this" and turned around with the ring. He got down on one knee and said something along the lines of how he had so much to say but really just wanted to know if I would marry him. I replied with "OH MY GOD! YES!" It may not have been your typical, super romantic proposal but I was totally, completely, utterly surprised and that's all that I really wanted. We celebrated our engagement the following day at the Buffalo Bills game.
Celebrating at the Bills game. They won for us too!
