Where/How did you meet?: Kev and I met in 2009 when I went to Orlando with my friend Jenny to visit Kevin’s brother Matt.  Jenny, Matt, and I have been friends since high school and we finally got back in touch after a few years apart.  I knew Matt had a brother (Kevin) but we never talked (I am a couple of years older than him).  When we arrived to Orlando, the three of us were catching up and waiting for Kevin to get home so we could go to dinner.  I still remember when he walked through the door. The entire weekend Kevin and I spent a lot of time together, and the rest is history.

How did he propose?:  It was Easter Sunday, 2011.  Kevin woke me up and told me the Easter bunny had come to visit.  Of  course I felt horrible because all I had gotten him was a card.  He told me there were 7 eggs hidden in the living room I had to find.  Each egg I found had a piece of candy and a little note.  One of my favorite eggs and actually the sixth egg I found had a ring pop in it with a note that said I’ll love you forever.  I continued searching the living room and Kevin finally asked if I wanted help finding the seventh egg.  I said yes, and he pulled out a beautiful Faberge egg that the ring was in and got down on his knee and proposed

How long were you engaged?:  8 months
