Ariha & I initially met through our best friends before reconnecting again a few months later. That was four years ago! Fast forward to 2022, and we both were ready to move forward with our next chapter. After four years together, one long distance, I knew I was ready for the next step. Surprising a psychologist was no easy feat. It took months of planning and deception to throw her off the trail. She's currently finishing a fellowship in Seattle, where I decided I would propose. When the day came, I had my illustrated book of our moments of love, the ring in the Harry Potter Golden Snitch, a "birthday picnic," and my heart ready to give to her. Safe to say, the look on her face was pure one of surprise!
