met my wife, Whitney, at Caribou Coffee in Lakeview about a year and a half ago. I usually work from home, but that morning I decided to change my scenery and work from the local coffee shop. I had just ordered my coffee, when Whitney came floating in and sat right next to me. She was having trouble hooking in her computer cord, so naturally I offered to help. We sat and talked for an hour, and before I left I asked for her number. From that moment on we were inseparable. After dating for several weeks, knowing that Whitney was the one, I said ‘I love you’ to her on November 2. Six months later, I surprised her and popped the question in that same coffee shop, right by the milk and sugar stand! We ended up marrying the following November 2. —David Heiner
