How We Met
Shane and I first met at work! At the time we were both working for the same company but in two different locations. One day I was visiting our second office location, which was where Shane worked! It was very cold in the office, and I was huddled over at a desk, visibly shivering. Shane noticed and offered me his coat to keep me warm. I remember pulling it over my shoulders and smiling. Our friendship grew into a whirlwind of a romance that I never saw coming.
How They Asked
Shane is always striving to turn my dreams into reality and he catches me off guard every single time.
I had no idea that I was going to Alaska the day after Thanksgiving. Shane planned the whole trip in secret and even enlisted my family to help pack my suitcase for the surprise!
Among all my ramblings and my mile-long list of adventure wishes, he remembered when I told him about my dream to see the northern lights. I’ll never forget stepping off the plane into -30°F weather, beaming while breathing in that cold crisp air.
I am the best version of myself when I am with him and I could not imagine facing any of life’s obstacles or experiencing any of life’s wonders without him. And so, under the brilliance of the aurora, with thousands of stars peppered throughout the sky, when the love of my life got down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him, I didn’t hesitate for a second. I said yes.
