The Story of How they Met…
“I was filming a pilot for a reality TV show about the dating app, The League (thankfully this never aired). Technically, I was on a blind date on camera (but it wasn't with Ross). He just happened to be at the very bar witnessing this bad ("horrendous" - in his words) date on film. He didn't have a chance to interrupt although he did some solid investigating and managed to track me down the very next day. I politely ignored his requests but Ross was persistent. After a few weeks of him casually asking me out, I finally gave it a shot.
Our first date was 14 hours long (a road trip up the coast of California) and really instantly ... I knew this was something special. For date two, we jetted off to LA for the weekend and by date three we were utterly in love. Our relationship from the very beginning was filled with spontaneous travel, constant romance, and adventure. It took a mere 8 months (and about 24 flights) with trips to Scotland, Montana, Montauk, LA, Austin, Detroit, Miami, Manhattan, Sarasota, Palm Springs, and Chicago before we got engaged in Australia.
I had joined Ross on one of his work trips. Although I had grown quite accustomed to his spontaneity he surprised me one morning by hiring a seaplane to take us to a private island a short distance from Sydney. It felt like a scene out of Bond movie, we laid on the beach, drank rosé, watched giant lizards scurry by while eating grapes and taking turns jumping into the shark infested water (we found out about the sharks later). And although it was pure magic, I wasn't expecting it in the slightest when he dropped to one knee and proposed with a beautiful 1920's vintage emerald and diamond ring. “
