How We Met
After graduating from college, I (Kathleen) randomly moved down to Indiana for work. One day I was on the Bumble App and matched with Clark.. come to find out we were living in the same apartment complex and working a mile down the road from one another. The rest is history. We met and were inseparable from day one, moved in together 6 months later, engaged two years later, and are getting married next year! He’s the kindest, calmest, and the best person I know.. and although it sounds cliché, I truly believe fate brought us together.
How They Asked
Clark came home after work and surprised me with my favorite ice cream. We went to our spot within the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore to watch the sunset. As we were sitting cuddled up on a bench, a stranger approached us, said she had taken a cute photo of us, and asked us if she could send it to us.
After that, we were walking back to our car and Clark stopped at the top of a hill overlooking the sunset/beach. He said “are you sure you want to marry me?”, as we had been frequently talking about it lately. And I said, “I mean I guess, why not?!”. Clark said “well good I can’t wait any longer; will you marry me?” and got down on one knee! I spent the next two minutes jumping up and down saying “are you serious?!” before I realized what was truly happening!
