How We Met
Austin and I met when I was in the 8th grade, and he was a freshman in high school. We started dating on September 23rd, 2009 and I knew from that day on I would spend the rest of my life with him. We stayed together all through high school, from proms, graduations, family vacations, college, work we had been there and basically grown up together. We knew no matter what we would get married.
how they asked
Austin and I had our 6 year anniversary in September and decided to plan a mountain trip for November. On Sunday, our last day there we went to visit The Blowing Rock. We were walking around taking selfies, laughing and having a blast. Then I asked a young girl to take a picture of us sitting on top of the rock, after 2 pictures I said thank you but he looked at her and said “can you take one more?” Austin looked back at me, and said “I have loved you for 6 years…” And in that moment I knew he was proposing. All I could do was cry and say YES! The young girls dad happened to be a photographer and got the whole thing on camera! My ring had a Sapphire on the side, which is the birthstone for the month of September in which our relationship was born. Austin & I are SO happy to spend forever together!
