How Did You Meet?: Matt and I met at Costco, where we were both working. We started dating in August of 2008.
On Christmas Eve, my family (Jen) always opens our presents. I had to work this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but in the evening Matt’s parents and mine as well as my brother and his girlfriend were over my parents’ house to open gifts. We ate dinner and after dinner opened our stockings and gifts one at a time. There was a watch that I knew Matt was going to buy me for Christmas and I opened that box last. Inside the box instead of the watch I thought I was going to get was a ring! Then with our family all around us, Matt proposed…to which I said YES! It was so special and even more special to share it with those we love!
