Our friendship began as sixth graders on the Tremont Jr. High Scholastic Bowl team. We both had (and still have) a love for school and learning and connected on a very nerdy, awkward level.
As our relationship grew, we went from crushing on each other to attending almost all of our high school dances together. During the summer before our senior year, we began officially dating.
After graduation, we each chose to go to different colleges and have spent the last three years in a long-distance relationship, learning to cherish each moment that we have together.
On May 30, 2015, Nolan drove to Holland to pick me up from school, took me out to Tunnel Park (our favorite beach), and popped the question.
We couldn’t be more excited to start this new phase of our lives together!
