Eric and I met on Cinco De Mayo at a bar in downtown Manhattan. Shortly after, we went to a wine bar where we spent the whole night laughing and getting to know each other. I am a special education teacher, and he works in advertising. Years later, on a Friday afternoon leaving work, I noticed a crowd of other teachers outside. As I walked down the steps of my school, Eric turned the corner, wearing a black suit and holding a red rose. He got down on one knee, gave me the “final rose,” and asked me to marry him. Both our families were waiting back at our apartment to celebrate!
