Ryan and I met just over two years ago online. We chatted for a week or so and decided to meet up. We had an instant connection. For me, I was meeting a man who wanted all the same things I did. He wanted a family and to settle down, but at the same time, we could go out and have a blast too. A social chameleon with goals and aspirations. It was all over from that moment. We moved in together in April of 2015 with our dogs and our best friend, Derek, and have created a little family for ourselves. Ryan proposed on my very first cruise, which was actually a work function of mine. Everyone in our 20 person group knew, except me. So, the first night on the bow of the ship, under all the stars, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was a dream! We couldn't be happier! On March 4th, we will be continuing the journey that is the rest of our lives together. We will continue building our life and realizing our dreams.
