“The Love Story”
Abby and Jerry met on a fun April evening that involved lots of dancing and conversation. Abby tried to play hard to get but Jerry persevered through her stubbornness. Some of their first dates included horseback riding, breakfast, bowling, and hiking. Their relationship grew strong as they continued to spend any available moment together. Laughter and kindness became the foundation for their love for one another. They shared that love with their feline friend, Fernando, and eventually to their canine beauties, Matilda and Aggie.
On the 13 of February Jerry and Abby planned for a romantic dinner to celebrate a pre-Valentine’s Day. They enjoyed dinner at The Local while Jerry was shaking in his boots and Abby had no clue what was to come.
Meanwhile, Jerry had arranged with Kristen Wederski, Aaron Like, and Nicole Griffith to set up the apartment romantically complete with rose petals, cupcakes, tea candles, and balloons. The effort that went into the proposal was remarkable.
Jerry hurried into the apartment while Abby checked the mail. As she walked in the door she stood in utter shock trying to comprehend the moment. She had known that they would last forever, but she didn’t know that forever would start that night. Jerry got on one knee and all he could say in his nerves was “Marry me, baby?” It was perfect and couldn’t have happened without the help of their dear friends.
