The Best Fortune Cookie

AJ and I teach together at Hillside Avenue School in Cranford, NJ. We were friends for about 5 months, and then realized that there was something more.  About a year into dating, on a random Thursday night in January, we went out to eat one night at Treasure Garden, a local Chinese restaurant. The rest is history!

When the server brought the bill, she also brought over fortune cookies. I opened mine, and it said “Will you marry me?”

The next thing I knew, AJ was down on one knee with a beautiful ring in his hand!!! Turns out all 4 fortune cookies said the same thing; AJ had planted them there before we went out to dinner! It was very romantic, and I couldn’t be more excited to marry him!
