We are both pretty private and shy people until you get to know us. Neither of us had been in a serious relationship before meeting so when we met thru acquaintances at a party, everything seemed to just click instantly. We originally bonded over similar music interests, but then started to realize that we were all around better and happier people when we were together. We really do bring out the best in each other. Emily can be rather serious, so Lou reminds her to relax and have fun. Lou, on the other hand, can be somewhat too easygoing, so Emily helps bring about some organization and logical thinking!
About a year after dating, Lou proposed during a picnic at Presque Isle State Park after only a little bantering from Emily of when the special day was going to happen! To Emily’s surprise, Lou had arranged for both of their parents to come to Erie the next night to help them celebrate. We celebrated over dinner and then went to a Seawolves Game where we were introduced on the big screen as just getting engaged. Fireworks ended an incredible day and evening and the start of a great future together!
