How We Met

Kaila and I met at college. The first go-around was her freshman year, my sophomore year. I tried expressing my interest in her that year (2011) but she (rightfully so) wanted nothing to do with me. Two years later we crossed paths again and I won her over. The rest is history.

How They Asked

As Kaila is an 8th grade ELA teacher, I’ll just copy and paste what she put on Facebook/Instagram:

“Today, Ryan & I hiked to Pulpit Rock with Hutch. We had just gotten to the top and sat down on the ledge when a woman asked if she could take a few photos of us with Hutch for a project she was working on. She then asked if she could get a photo of me looking out over the ledge. Totally oblivious, I obliged and turned to face the valley below us so she could snap a few photos. Little did I know, this woman was not a stranger, and Ryan had coordinated all of this to be sure our moment was captured. This was well worth the wait.”
