1: Our Story... | Andy and I practically grew up together. We both attended the same small town school from first grade on. In third grade I became more aware of Andy and had a crush on him even as far back as that. Our eighth grade year was the year are friendship really developed. It continued on through high school where we shared many of the same classes. Up until our junior year, our friendship never reached beyond the walls of school, but that year, we went to a couple of movies and out to dinner a few times. Andy also came over to my house a few times to watch movies. It was almost as if we were deciding if we should get closer or not. For some reason, Andy then decided to stop hanging out outside of school, but our friendship continued within school.. We officially began dating on June 1, 2007, graduation night. This was also the night of our first kiss. The first "I love you" came later in the summer about a week before Andy was set to move to Northern Michigan for college. We spent that first semester of school traveling back and forth between Northern Michigan University and UW-Oshkosh to visit each other on weekends. Finally, in the second semester of our freshmen year of college, I moved up to Michigan to attend NMU with Andy.
2: Will you marry me? | May 11, 2010 After Andy returned to Marquette after a short trip home, he suggested that we take a walk on the beach. At about 11 pm, we got in the car and drove to the beach along Lake Superior. We walked the beach for a little bit and just enjoyed talking, taking in the sound of the waves crashing along the shoreline of Lake Superior and enjoying the sight of the lighthouse. After awhile, we found some large rocks and sat down to talk about the the future. Andy was telling me how how much he loved me and wanted wanted to spend the rest of his life life with me. Next thing I knew, Andy Andy was down on one knee proposing proposing to me. Too happy to speak speak, I managed to nod my head head, and Andy slipped the ring on on my finger.
