Alison and Melissa met on February 15, 2014 in Penn Station. After establishing that Ali likes to eat more than salad, Melissa took her to Umami burger (one of the best burger joints in town). They talked, they joked, even though Ali was more interested in the lacrosse game behind their table they still hit it off. As they took a cab over to Stonewall Bar, Melissa realized she lost all her money. They went back to the restaurant (never found the money) and ended their night playing pool and enjoying a couple of beers.
It had been four years since that day, and a lot of laughter, tears and stress with Melissa finishing up PT school and Ali moving to the boondocks in Suffern. It was then in October 2017 that Melissa proposed to Alison at the Walkway Over The Hudson in a clear, dark night. Melissa was so nervous, and barely got any words out, and Ali of course, just had to ask “what are you doing?” She eventually said yes, and so begins the adventures of A and M.
