We met just before last summer began and despite the whirlwind of graduation and new careers for the both of us we found the person we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives with. The love filled summer rushed by and left us both helplessly twitterpated~ By the holiday season that year, a gold band was waiting for the perfect moment to make its debut. That moment came while we rang in the New Years in Banff, AB Canada. While taking in the panoramic views at the top of Sulpher Mountain in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Michael got down on one knee and slipped the gold band onto Katie's left hand. It was a romantic start to the New Year and the perfect beginning to the rest of our lives together.
