On Monday, September 3, 2007, Kassondra was throwing a Labor Day BBQ at her home in Winter Park, FL. Her friend Christopher extended the invitation to his friend Michael. Michael arrived to find a group of people playing Trivial Pursuit: Totally 80’s and everybody had a teammate except Kassondra.

They became a team that day and have remained so ever since.


On Friday, October 17, 2008, Michael slipped out of work early and returned to his and Kassondra’s Maitland, FL apartment. He had plenty of time to whip up an intimate dinner for two because Kassondra was attending a club meeting at school. She arrived home to a beautifully decorated, candle-lit table. After a delicious meal, Michael got down on one knee and proposed.


Kassondra said yes.
