Favorite budding SJC courtship memory?
Meeting for lunch during Common Hour

Where was your first date?
To a restaurant for dinner

First movie you saw together:
Hitch with Will Smith, which still makes us reminisce every time we catch it on T.V.

The proposal:
Feb. 7, 2009 — Matt took advantage of a very rare, warm Saturday in February. He packed a picnic lunch and we took a drive to Robert Moses. We ate our lunch looking out at the ocean and decided to take a walk on the beach. All of the sudden, I realized I was a little ahead of him and when I turned around, he was down on one knee. It was perfect!

What's your message to the SJC community this Valentine's Day?
When you find true love, hold on to it. Be each other's best friend and always make sure to make time for one another. Laugh together, be silly and cherish each other.
