Gaelyn and Lyle
How We Met
We met at a hardware store in our city. We both worked there, and I had the biggest crush on Lyle, but I was convinced he would never like me because he was older. I remember very clearly telling my friend that I would marry Lyle one day. After a few months of working together, Lyle had an intuition to ask me out, and the rest is history. We are currently converting a school bus into a tiny home together!
How He Asked
On our 3 1/2 year anniversary, Lyle woke me up at 6AM and told me to pack a bag. He said he was taking me to Steamboat Springs, our favorite place in the world, and that he had covered my shift at work. For years, I’ve jokingly wondered what my instagram caption would be when we got engaged. When we got our favorite breakfast place, Lyle asked me “Did you figure out your caption?”. I said, “What?”. He repeated his question and then pulled out the ring. My jaw dropped and I immediately started sobbing, and of course said yes. Another table bought us our meal, and then we had the best day ever. We hiked to a waterfall, and I was too busy staring at my ring, and I fell! It was the best day of my life.
