Here is her story!
I met Patrick many years ago at a little place called "Bringthe Blues" on Water Street in Elmira. It doesn't exist anymore but for a brief time it was excellent!
I saw Patrick right away; very cute very confident and very confident. He was with a group of friends and one of his friends approached me first. But his friend was obnoxious and I quickly dismissed all of them.
Later Patrick came to talk to me and offered me a drink. I turned him down. I was a designated driver and honestly not interested in having a conversation with anyone but the friend I was there with.
He was very persistent and very cute. I finally gave him my name, well actually a fake name and total fabrication for a back story.
We ran into each other a few more times before I finally decided to tell him I real name. I thought for sure I would never hear from him again but we became very close friends.
many years later, I was participating in the first Street Painting festival in downtown Elmira. He came down to visit me and we walked around for a while. I was either to get back and work on my chalk drawing, but he kept stalling.
Finally we get back to where I'm working and there's a huge crowd standing around my unfinished piece. I get through to see what they're looking at and see the words "Will You Marry Me, Crystal?" written in chalk right by my own chalk drawing. I turn around and he's standing behind me holding out a ring with misty eyes and a shaking bottom lip. I don't know if he ever verbally asked the question. I just kissed him. now that I think about it I don't know if I even verbally answered his question.
We were standing right on the spot where we first met. Right in front of where Bring the Blues used to be. So, I can't tell my proposal story without telling our introduction story because they happened in the same place.
It's been nearly a dozen years since I met him. We have two beautiful daughters and are building our life together. He is still my best friend, and too cute for his own good.
