Lily and Brent met on the first day of an internship in DC the summer of 2010. While Brent was head over heels for Lily, she needed a little more convincing. Shortly into the internship, Brent learned that Lily had a soft spot for M&Ms (as well as most other chocolate candies) and he knew he had his opening.
So each day when they would meet at the same metro stop to ride home, Brent would surprise Lily with a new bag of M&Ms. This continued throughout the summer until the end of the internship when Brent asked Lily to be his girlfriend on the back of a bag of M&Ms.
Six years later, Brent asked Lily to marry him with…you guessed it…a bag of M&Ms. If it works, don’t fix it!
