Erin and Sam

We started dating when he was a sophomore and when I was a junior in high school in Connecticut, and continued our relationship into our college years. However, my junior year of college, he made the decision to put college on hold and enlist in the Air Force. He left for his first duty station at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, and I stayed behind to finish up school. Then, the day that I graduated from college, I moved up north, we got our first apartment together, and our adventure really began. He proposed to me (after flying home to ask my Dad and ring shopping with his Mom) after a casual breakfast and a walk through the trails in our town. It could not have been any more peaceful, simple, and perfect.
