Mark and I were colleagues at a newspaper. I offered to cover a Mets game for work, and because I knew he loved baseball, I asked if he wanted to come too. It was literally the second MLB game I’d ever been to in my life, but I was trying to get him outside the office.
He agreed, and we were both obviously excited, but when the rest of our team found out, they wanted to come too! Thankfully none of them actually showed up, and we spent the day together. We’ve been together ever since, and while we were traveling last year—after deciding to quit our jobs, move into a camper and drive around the country—he proposed on the beach in Florida.”
