how we met
Although technically we worked for the same company at the same time (for just 1 month), we are together today because of a couple of friends. In July of 2000, Joules brought (dragged, whatever you want to call it  :) Christina along to a party at Darren's house, and from that day on, he knew Christina was the girl for him.
when and how we got engaged
We got engaged on Christmas morning, December 25, 2001.


how it happened (the short version)

Christmas morning, in our apartment, after we had opened all the gifts, he said there was one more gift in the other room. He said he didn't wrap it, so I would need to close my eyes so he could bring it in the other room. Then he got down on one knee and told me how much he loved me, and then asked, "Will you marry me?" Then I gave him a big hug, and then said, "Yes, of course I will!" – the longer version
