Holli and Christopher
How We Met
Christopher and I met at a local dive bar in Vancouver, WA on October 28th, 2009. I never thought that I’d walk into a bar and leave that night having met the person I’d spend the rest of my life with. We went on a few lunch dates and were instantly joined to the hip. We moved in together after only a few months and haven’t been apart since. We’ve had our ups and downs, but I couldn’t picture my life journey without him next to me holding my hand.
How He Asked
Chris had asked me about a year ago to marry him. It wasn’t anything special, and we ended up deciding that the time wasn’t right. Since then, our relationship had only grown and matured so we both decided that we were ready. We went to the beach to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and he was very persistent about going to one of the lighthouses. Even though the weather was off and on stormy, rainy, windy or sunny I said okay. We made our way to the Northhead Lighthouse and walked around. I even made a joke and said “If you had a ring, this would be a great place for you to propose!”. I turned around to look over the ocean and when I turned back around, Chris had dropped to his knee and said “speaking of…Holli will you do me the honor of spending the rest of your life with me?”. I could barley hide my excitement, I even yelled out “Holy crap!”. I couldn’t have imagined anything more perfect from him!
