On, January 17, 2009, Justin and I met at Bier Market in Cleveland, Ohio. My friend, Kelly, brought him over to our table after meeting him while ordering drinks at the bar. I was originally not that into him joining our table, but he won me over. Eventually, it was just us sitting at the table flirting. We exchanged numbers, and we ended up going on our first date the next Saturday at Luchita's in Hudson. He was wearing the exact same shirt he wore the night we met :) We lived about 40 minutes from each other, so we would choose areas that were about halfway for both of us. I can't tell you how many times we ate at the Winking Lizard in Macedonia!! After I graduated from law school and Justin bought a house, we moved in together the first weekend of August 2009. We became engaged Thanksgiving Eve, November 24, 2010. Justin had been home all day with a sprained ankle. When I came home, he was acting strange, but I thought it was because he had been bored at home alone. He put aside his crutches and got down on one knee. I didn't realize what was going on, and started to lecture him about how he was going to hurt himself, that the doctor didn't want him to kneel, etc. And he interrupted me, "Will you marry me?" At which point, I began apologizing for yelling at him. Eventually, I did say yes. The ring he gave me was his Grandmom's, which means a lot to me! We celebrated with cupcakes and Christmas Ale before telling our parents on Thanksgiving day!
