….The girls have something to tell you!

Yes, it’s true. After dating for 6.25 years, Micah has finally popped the question!

I am still very shocked by the everything–we have been together so long that it’s strange to think that now our relationship status has now been upgraded to fiancé .

People always ask why we’ve taken so long to get married – why would we wait 6 years to do something that most people do after a year or so together?

We don’t exactly have a real answer to that question, except that when we first started dating we were so young–19 years old and barely out of high school. Looking back on it all makes me realize that we’ve grown up together. We started as kids, and grew into the people we are today.

To be honest, I’m very thankful that we waited as long as we did. Maybe our story isn’t as romantic or as exciting the movies where people fall in love and get married right away…but it’s real. It’s a story of young love that has gone through it all: Good times and bad. Smiles and tears. Anger and Laughter. It has survived even separated by vast oceans and foreign lands. It has fought through times that even we didn’t think it would make it through. It has weathered the storm of Life, and has blossomed into a strong and committed relationship. It has foundation. And if no one wants to make a movie about that, well then, they’re missing out.

The story is simple.

He flew home without me knowing, and proposed on my parent’s doorstep at sunset.

It was perfect.
