Savannah and Ryan
How We Met
We’re both originally from Wisconsin, but currently living in California due to his PDS. We met in Fond du Lac during the summer at the mall and ever since then it was perfect. There was a few bumps in the road, but we were led back to each other and have begun our lives together with many adventures.
How He Asked
1It was two days before the love of my life deployed and we were making the most out of every minute together. We went to the beach in Oceanside, CA., where we walked on a path of huge rocks that went into the ocean. We spent a good hour just walking and as we were walking back he stopped, wrapped his arms around me, and said he loved me, which at that time I replied by saying, “I love you.” He then pulled away, looked into my eyes and said my name, and then got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I was completely surprised and overwhelmed that I couldn’t speak, so I shook my head yes a million times. He then continued and said, “will you promise to marry me when I get back (from deployment) and will you promise to start a family with me?” (We just found out about two weeks ago that we’re expecting our first child. I smiled with tears in my eyes and said, “Yes, I promise.” He put the ring on my finger, got up, and kissed me right in front of the beautiful sunset. It’s a night that I won’t ever forget and I can’t wait for him to return so we can get married.
