THESE TWO…words can’t even express how much I love them. I’ve sat here for about an hour trying to write the “perfect” post about them and I keep deleting it. Why? Well, because everything I wrote wasn’t “good” enough (in my mind). I can’t put into words how much they mean to me and how happy I am that they’ve found each other….and that they will soon say I DO.
I’ll save you my sappy speech and happy tears and let their engagement interview below speak for it’s self…
How did you two meet?
Gene and I met at our previous job. I had been working there for about a year when he came to interview. He was applying for a sales representative job (selling dental supplies to Dr’s) and I was in marketing/sales support. I helped train Gene on the computer system and phone system and way things worked around the office. He was a very easy trainee! :) – Angela
We first met at our previous employer in April of 2011. I was coming in for an interview during my senior year of college and Angela had already been there. I remember sitting in the front lobby waiting and Angela came around the corner to speak with the receptionist. I remember asking her how she liked working there and if it was fun… and she just said yea she liked it and so on with a smile. I started working there in May after college. Angela trained me on a few systems… I remember always trying to direct my questions to her so she could help, even if it wasn’t her expertise. – Gene
It was the week of Thanksgiving, and Gene’s Mom was here in town visiting. She was staying for the week and having thanksgiving with my family. We all went over to my parents house for Thanksgiving. Gene was sort of acting strange. He refused to take his winter jacket off (claiming he was cold)….said he wanted to keep it on. Walking and pacing around the room. Eventually he came over to me (sitting at the counter with his mom and my mom) and asked if I wanted to go outside with him to look at the lake (frozen lake aka…it was winter :)) So we went outside…it was actually beautiful out because it had just snowed the night before. We chatted, and he asked me if I loved him, if I would love him forever….then got down on one knee and asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him. (it was just one of those moments- seems like time just freezes– I could tell how nervous he was…his lips were shaking). All my family and his Mom were watching us out on the deck and everyone was cheering as we came inside. – Angela
This is such a hard question because there isn’t just one thing…Gene makes life as a whole easier- he is constantly supportive, caring, loving, responsible. He takes care of me and everything in our life together. He is one of those people you can depend on.
I love Angela’s perfect combination of personality and beauty. No only is she crazy beautiful she is also one of the kindest people I’ve ever met. She will always do anything for family and friends and I know she will always do anything for me. She is not shy and can always be comfortable in any situation she is put in. She has a great laugh; especially when we watch funny movies… she is a big dork like myself and I know I can always say something or do something goofy/dumb and she will never judge. I love that her and I can watch sports together- I have always been a big sports fan and it is very hard to find a girl that can appreciate sports but also have a conversation about it and have knowledge. I love that she is not high maintenance and can just be perfectly happy in sweats and a hoodie.
