Tell us how you first met? Who, what, when, where, why? Give us the dirty details.
Abby- We first met back in August of 2011 at our Hy-Vee orientation, we were both juniors in high school and ended up also being in a couple classes together. We quickly became friends and would constantly flirt with each other. We dated for a little bit but ended up going our separate ways. It wasn’t until my senior year of college we reconnected again and the rest is history!
When did you know he/she was the one? Was there something he/she did?, etc.
There was something that brought us back together and I think we both just knew our lives would be better together than apart.
Tell us about the proposal. (Did you see it coming, how long was it in the planning?, how did you feel? nervous, excited, freaking out?)
I think I always knew in the back of my mind it would happen eventually but just didn’t know when, we already bought a house together and had a baby so I guess that was sort of our next step. Per Garitt the proposal didn’t take to long to plan, we had planned a trip to go up to Bentleyville in Duluth and that is when he decided to pop the question! He took me out to “our spot” at Enger Tower which is where he asked me to be his girlfriend back in 2015 and that’s when he got down on his knee and asked me to be his wife. I was obviously ecstatic I was getting to spend the rest of my life with my best friend!
Tell us the one thing you love most about each other.
Abby- The thing I love most about Garitt is he has the biggest heart and will do anything to make me laugh and smile. I also love that he cooks for me, cause I’m always hungry. Garitt- The thing I love most about Abby is she is the most caring/ selfless person I’ve ever met. Even if it’s not something she wants, she will do whatever it takes to make myself and my daughter happy. Which is why she deserves the world.
If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.
Garitt- Something silly Abby does is when she trying making a joke that she thinks is really funny, she will repeat it to herself under her breath. And something quirky she does is when she cleans her ears she coughs.
Besides getting married - whats the one thing you are looking forward to on your wedding day?
Abby- We are most excited to celebrate with all our family and friends and I also can’t wait to eat our cake :)
