Real Couples // Engagement at the Griffith Observatory in L.A.: Nancy + Will

We met at a BBQ thrown by a roller derby teammate. He happened along because my teammate was Will's roommate's sister. The rest is history. During that history we dated for three months then went long distance for a year and a half. Will moved from Boston to Austin then LA in that time until he finally convinced me to join him. After a year of living together he popped the question. 

We got engaged over Christmas vacation while visiting home (Massachusetts). We were headed to have dinner with his dad when he decided to take me on a little driving tour of his hometown. Little did I know that he was just gathering up courage to pop the question. We park at a quaint little pond and take a walk to the gazebo and that is where he asked. We drive by it every time we go to his Dad's house.
