How we met:
After searching through profile after profile after profile of
eligible bachelors in the greater Boston area, Sari finally came
across the profile of an attractive, 6’ or taller, nonsmoker who
enjoys travel. On August 2, 2010 she sent a smart, funny, and
charming e-mail, to which Aaron promptly replied - and thus began
a month-long chain of correspondences. After weeks of e-mails,
Sari nearly gave up on the thought of actually meeting Aaron in
person. Just when she was about to wink at a 5' 11" social drinker,
who hikes, Aaron sent one last e-mail and finally asked Sari out
on a date. They met on September 7, 2010 at Toad, a hole-in-the-wall
bar in Cambridge with excellent live music.
Aaron and Sari continued the courting process. Aaron had finally
found someone to take to countless concerts, and Sari finally
found someone who could make really good mac and cheese! They both
got the stamp of approval from friends and families and even started
traveling together. From day trips, to weekend getaways, to
galavanting over international waters, Sari and Aaron came to
realize that whether they be in Boston or Barcelona, they were
On September 1, 2011 Aaron and Sari moved in together. While
unpacking from the move, Sari came across a black box that was
taped shut. She gave it a little shake and assessed the weight.
She didn’t hear any ticking, so she figured it was safe. Aaron then
informed Sari that she was not allowed to open this box. Ever. He
placed the box in a closet and there it stayed, taunting Sari every
time she saw it. Despite her poor self control and love of snooping,
Sari respected Aaron’s wishes and did not open the box. Ever.
On June 21, 2012, Aaron and Sari took a trip to Provincetown, MA.
They stayed at a lovely B&B with a private balcony overlooking the
charming streets of P-town. On the evening of June 22, after a day
of fun in the sun, Aaron sat Sari down on the balcony and told her
he had a gift for her. He brought out a beautifully wrapped box (yes,
roughly the size of the black box), and inside it was a handmade
wooden box which contained a scrapbook filled with memories and
tidbits of their relationship. After Sari finished going through
the book, Aaron got down on one knee, pulled out some bling, and
popped the question!
