Sarah’s older brother, Eli, brought around a friend named David that began to spend a lot of time around the house, playing music with Eli. But neither Sarah nor David spent much time paying attention to the other until they were stuck in the same car. Through smalltalk they realized they had so much more in common with each other than they ever would have guessed. With more conversation and a bit of flirtation, David mustered up the courage to ask his unexpected crush on a double date with Eli and his guest. Instead of the usual “dinner and a movie”, they had not only the pleasure of each other’s company, but the pleasure of seeing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Afterwards they opted to get some time alone. They wandered around Millenium Park, with stars in the skies and stars in their eyes. The found their way to Cancer Survivor’s Garden, which has a metal structure that frames and envelopes a breathtaking view of Chicago. With a first date like that, there has to be a second. And a third. Sarah and David went steady for a year and two months before they went on another date to the exact same spot. Only this time, not just the stars and their eyes were twinkling… the ring was too. David proposed! The couple is set to wed in August, which can’t come quick enough. Congratulations!
