Neither of us were looking. If anything, we were AVOIDING the pursuit of a relationship. But (how life usually happens) the unexpected occurred. One rainy afternoon, Ryan walked into the bar where I was working part-time as a cocktail waitress. He ordered a scotch, with ice on the side. I immediately started to give him a hard time, because I knew he planned to dump the ice in the scotch, and therefore was only "dirtying more dishes for me". Regardless, I brought him the drink with ice on the side. (And needless to say, he smiled and dumped it right in). Turns out his Grandpa used to drink scotch that way. We proceeded to talk and laugh the entire time he and his friends were there. In fact, they were the only people in the entire bar. He asked for my number before he left, so we might "watch a movie or grab some coffee sometime." Turns out, we ended up having more things in common than we first thought, including a shared appreciation for kids' movies, yoga, sarcasm and love for the outdoors. It became apparent very quickly that we had both found "our person". Six months after we started dating seriously, we found ourselves engaged and the rest is history!

*We would like to invite all guests to join us for a casual farewell brunch. The purpose is to simply share in a few more laughs and hugs before everyone goes their separate way! Please RSVP so we can know how many people to plan for, and we will make a reservation somewhere accordingly
