Jessica Micinski of Beulah, Michigan &
Todd DeLand of Saginaw, Michigan
How We Met
We met at Central Michigan University while working as Resident Assistants together in Wheeler Hall.  After a few months of avoiding each other, we decided to make it official and tell our boss that we were dating.  And the rest, they say, is history.  
We worked together for a year and continued dating after that.  We graduated from CMU in December 2006.  After that, we moved to Okemos for a while and have now settled in Ann Arbor.  
Todd works for MediaSpan in Ann Arbor as a software engineer on the Strategic Initiatives Team.  Jessica is a high school English teacher at Pinckney High School.  
We love living in Ann Arbor and we are enjoying our time together!
The Proposal
Todd’s Story:
We got engaged December 29th, 2007 while on our trip to Vermont! We were driving north on a rainy day to find more snow and I spotted this waterfall on the side of the road. It just seemed like the perfect place and time, so I asked and she said yes!
Jessica’s Story:
I had no idea that this was coming.  Our plans changed spur of the moment due to the weather, so there was no way that Todd could have planned anything.  Little did I know, Todd had been carrying around the ring all vacation!  When we passed the waterfall, we slammed on the breaks and got out.  As our friends walked back to the car, Todd pulled me back and started saying all these nice things!  Then I felt his heart beating fast through his jacket and I couldn’t believe he was proposing!  He got on his knee in the snow and of course I said, “yes!”
