how we met
Tim: We first met in college at the University of Dayton through mutual friends. We went from acquaintances to friends after she needed a ride and I was one of the few on campus who had a car.
Caroline: Both being some of the only people from Michigan, we always had something to talk about. Whenever we ran into each other, we discovered more things that we had in common. Tim even went to the same high school as both of my grandfathers!
how they asked
Tim proposed to me in my hometown of East Lansing in mid December. He had the ring for months, but was waiting for the right opportunity; even bringing it with him on trips. After Tim’s offer on a house was accepted they went out to celebrate. Before, during, and after dinner, Tim gave me three photo albums from the first trips that we had taken together. After dinner, Tim surprised me by proposing at his apartment. I was completely surprised. Champagne was shared at my parents house to celebrate and spread the good news.
