Our love story
First DateAug 26 2015
It was their first time actually meeting in person. Gary was a bit apprehensive and Suzie was a bit sweaty (it was really hot that day and she walked from work). It all began at Maude's in the West Loop. Gary decided to order oysters to appear "adventurous" even though he hated them. Suzie never suspected a thing. Three hours later, they both left knowing they wanted to see each other again.
First TripJuly 28 2016
They say you really don't know someone until you travel with them. Well, their trip to Montreal was the real test. Suzie decided to use a shady route on Google Maps and travel through the Montreal ghetto for 45 minutes all for the sake of poutine. Gary made Suzie roam the botanical gardens for three hours only to find out the exhibit he wanted to see closed three years ago. By the trips end, their love for each other and dipped ice cream cones grew stronger.
ProposalOct 17 2017
Suzie was unaware that the whole time during their Italy trip, Gary was hiding a ring in various hotel safes. On their first night in Florence, they were exhausted from all the travels so they decided to have a low-key night. Gary suggested going to the Piazzale Michelangelo to watch the sunset the first night because he thought it was quiet and secluded. Little did he know that there were 300+ people also doing the same thing that night. They managed to find a quiet spot on a bench right before Gary reached into his sock and pulled out a ring.
