Katherine and Andrew
How We Met
Andrew and I met 4 and a bit years ago. He had just gotten out of a long term relationship and I was very non committal. We were total opposites but somehow we always found laughter and joy in everything we did.
Everyone always said we both changed (for the better) when we started dating. We love to travel the world and be adventurous. We truly became a family when we got our dog Easton. He gave us more of a reason to spend time together and laugh about how ridiculous our dog truly was.
After being in a long term relationship for many many years, Andrew never really saw the point in getting married. With everything he had dealt with in the past, I didn’t blame him. I, however, always wanted to get married. I knew that if he ever did pop the question, it would be because he wanted to make me happy. And that’s exactly what he did!!
How He Asked
It was a regular Saturday morning. We were laying around in bed just relaxing and I was talking about all the things we had to do. He ‘convinced’ me to stay in bed a little longer (not hard to do on a Saturday morning haha).
We began to talk about all the things we had to celebrate this month with my birthday and Christmas coming up and he turned to me and said, ‘what if I gave you something else to celebrate?..what if I told you I love you?..what if I told you that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with you?’ And he showed me the ring and I couldn’t say no!!
