Katie and Dustin

How We Met

Dustin and I knew of each other in high school, it was a small Catholic school, but he was a year behind me so I didn’t pay him a lot of attention lol. Our story doesn’t really begin until July of 2015, close to 15 years after we had a class together in school (which I didn’t remember but he did….he’d been pining after me all these years haha.) I got a text from my friend Andrea asking if she would be interested in talking with a cousin of her husbands(Luke) who just happened to be Dustin. After some Facebook stalking, I gave Andrea the okay to give Dustin my information. A few days later he went for it and sent me a message. While getting to know each other via messages and phone calls, he finally asked me out. Our first date was July 25, 2015, and they have been inseparable ever since!! ❤

how they asked

On October 31, 2017, Katie came home from work and noticed two pumpkins on the counter in the kitchen. Katie had been wanting to carve pumpkins most of the month but they never found the time, so she was happy to see they were finally going to get to do it! Dustin informed her that he had already started on one of the pumpkins, and told her to go take a look. When Katie walked around the counter to see the pumpkin, she saw that Dustin had carved “Marry Me?” into it. Katie began to cry and Dustin got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife, of course, Katie couldn’t say yes fast enough!
