We first met in the 5th grade! Jake was the new kid at Pleasant Valley Elementary school we were friends for years. We dated for a very short time freshman year of high school but It was the right person at the wrong time. We grew up Tessa Switched schools. we Graduated high school we learned about life and love and sophomore year of college (5 years later) Jake sent a facebook memory that reconnected the friendship. We decided to start as friends and after a few months Tessa asked him out June 18, 2017. And here we all are 5 years later getting married!!!
It was supposed to be a girls day/ Tessa's birthday trip. Andrea and Tessa went to the beach, got their nails done and traveled to the beach towns on the Oregon coast . at the last stop devils punch bowl the view point was closed. so we went down a trail to the beach. Andrea had the great idea to collect rocks so I started collecting rocks. I saw 2 huskies and commented how cute they were and that I missed Koda. as I looked up I saw Jake and Koda. I asked what are you doing here and Jake got down on one knee and proposed. and the first thing I said was "Do you want a rock?" and then i said YESSS! and we were engaged! On April 10th 2021
