When I popped the question I was in the kitchen cooking black beans and Alex pinned me against the counter and asked “What are we waiting for?’  I saw how serious she was about marriage and I knew that if I didn’t, she’d take off eventually. I had been wanting to marry her for a while but I just didn’t know how and when. She told me I’d have to propose to her old school-style after our kitchen hostage proposal. She picked out her ring to have ordered and I surprised her one day in front of her dad’s house where there were white roses in bloom. I got down on one knee. She was happy and surprised. No regrets!
Alex and Jesus got married on June 8 in Oakland, CA! We wish them the best of luck in their union.
