Jon and I met in college where we both worked as Residential Assistants in the same building. It was the first year the building was co-ed so we definitely think fate was on our side! He asked me out for pizza on move in day and we have been adventuring together ever since.
After 5 years of dating, Jon took me on a hot air balloon ride and a winery tour for my birthday weekend. Clearly the setting was beautiful and with each passing winery, my hopes for a proposal grew. By the end of the day on Saturday, there was no ring in sight and I decided to just enjoy the rest of our time together as boyfriend and girlfriend. On Sunday, Jon said we had one more winery to go to ... of course, the setting was perfect but not as perfect as the words Jon spoke when he asked me to be his wife!
We got married on July 11th 2015. BEST DAY EVER! While the day was one I will never forget, creating a marriage with this guy has been more then I could have ever dreamed for myself. We have since bought a house and filled it with three fur babies and a ton of memories!
Jon is a cat person so we have a brother and sister feline duo named Big Mac and Clementine. After a little convincing, our fluff ball Bailey recently joined us and has taken over our hearts!
Rather than buy gifts for each other, we always put that money towards a trip. We have a rather long bucket list that we are slowly working towards!
We moved into our house about a year after we got married and have already put a ton of love into it. We are the DIY type and have put in built in bookshelves, renovated the bathroom, and painted just about every room in the house.
We both come from large families! From holidays to Sunday dinners, one of our favorite things is spending time with the people who made us who we are today.
