Here is a quick run down of our history plus/minus a few details

Jessica and Donald met in 2002 while attending CU Boulder. Donald was the housemate of a friend of Jessica's, and they spent many a BBQ getting to know each other. Jessica decided that there was something about that red head in the bathrobe pumping the keg that she liked, and her feelings were reciprocated.

The happy couple moved to New Jersey in 2005. After apartment living in Hightstown and Princeton, they were glad to move to their current Westfield home in 2007. They share the house with their dogs, Sally and Baxter.

Shortly after being convinced that proposing marriage in Costa Rica was not a good idea ("What if you get mugged?!"), Donald found the perfect opportunity: Jessica had recently lost a ring, and Donald decided he would fake its return from the hotel where they believe it was lost. Jessica tore into the faked FedEx box, excited to have her ring back, but her face fell as she stammered, "This… isn't my ring!" It then dawned on her that this was actually her beautiful engagement ring, as Donald proposed on one knee, "So… Do you want to marry me, or what?" She did.
