Q. Tell us about the proposal. We want all the details!
A. Last time we had talked about marriage was over a year ago so I didn’t know what was coming. One of the first big events when we started dating was going to all the endymion functions. His mom had passed away from cancer the year before and riding in the parade with his whole family was like a bonding experience for them and gave them something happy and fun to look forward to and get their mind off of it. I had never been to a mardi gras ball even though im from here so it was very exciting. His dad ended up being randomly picked as king of endymion one year. so this was really just a fun and great time of year for us and his family. His sister, Ashley Russo, also met her fiancé here. His family really thinks that all the good events happening at endymion was sort of like his mom’s way of looking after them. He proposed after riding in the endymion parade at the ball in the superdome with all of our friends and his family plus my little sister around.
