We can't believe our very own Marketing Manager is engaged! Read on to see how Patrick surprised Gina with her beautiful, new ring. On behalf of the entire Long's team, congratulations and best of luck.
How did the two of you meet?
"Through mutual friends. Shout out to Meg, Kate and Julian!"
How did he propose?
"It was Thanksgiving morning. I woke up around 8:30, and thought it was strange that Pat had already gotten up. I got up and went downstairs. As I began to walk down the stairs, I heard the TV go on. I walked into the living room, and asked Pat what he was doing. He told me to sit next to him on the couch. I looked at the TV, and noticed there was a photo montage of us playing on the screen, set to the song "Breathless" by William Prince. There were so many photos of us from the past three years and videos of us being silly.
I kept asking, 'What is happening?!' to which Pat responded, 'You'll find out.'I sat down, then Pat - who had hidden the ring box under one of the pillows - got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! Hardly any of our family or friends knew, so it was so fun to FaceTime all of them to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving and announce our engagement! I woke up with something else to be thankful for on Thanksgiving morning."
