We have a really special story to share today! Our very own Danielle, who has worked in our Orange store for several years and someone who we consider to be part of the family, just got engaged! Danielle & Matt met her sophomore year of high school and started dating a year later. They have been attached at the hip ever since – literally always together! Matt went to Fairfield for college and she followed suit the next year. This past November they celebrated 6 years together.
Matt and Danielle knew from the beginning that they were meant to be together and that they wanted to spend their future together. They have lost count of the amount of times they spent talking about our future what our lives would be like.
Both Danielle & Matt are very family oriented so they knew that when the time came for them to get engaged they wanted family to be a part of it. Every year since they started dating they’ve gone to see the tree in NYC at Christmas time, which was the first place Danielle told Matt that she loved him. She thought for sure that he would pop the question on one of their annual trips. However last Sunday, Matt’s family came over for dinner and they were all in the living room watching the football game. All of a sudden the game is on mute and Matt is telling Danielle about how much he loves her. Suddenly they were in front of the Christmas tree, Matt was on one knee, and Danielle was bawling!
Danielle says it all happened so fast and she just remember saying yes yes yes with their families watching! We couldn’t be happier for Danielle & Matt on starting this new chapter in their lives.
