Our Story
How it all began...

Ryan and I first connected online late in 2015.  We chatted a bit but didn't connect, he was in Bellevue, IA at the time and I was in Marion, IA.   So there was about an hour distance between us.  Ryan had been looking to move back to the Cedar Rapids area for a while.  An opportunity came up, he accepted the job and bought a house.  

We started talking again and decided to meet.  Our first date was St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, 2016.  We learned he had bought a house only 2 blocks from mine.  It has been so convenient.  Over the next 2 years our friendship and love grew.  He met my boys and became part of the family.   

On May 4th, 2018, Ryan and I went out for dinner and to a concert.  Then we went for a walk.  As we were walking I was excited for our engagement someday and imagining what that moment will be like.   I was thinking that someday I will be constantly be wondering, is it now?  Then Ryan pulled me to the side to sit on a rock near a small pond.  It was now!  I was so surprised.  He held out a ring and asked me to marry him.  Of course I said yes.  

We look forward to our wedding and many wonderful years together.
