HOW DID YOU MEET?
We met at a little dive bar in Calgary, AB. Dustin was there for his friend / roommates birthday. Kylee was dragged out by a friend to go to the same birthday. We met and chatted for a bit, he ended up having to leave the table to take care of the birthday girl which left Kylee open to have another guy come by and start chatting with her. Kylee ended up leaving that night with a date with another guy (which was a terrible flop of a date) Dustin got Kylee’s number from her friend and was quite persistent and eventually ended up getting Kylee to come over to watch a movie. Neither of us knew for sure if the other one though it was a date or not, but we finished the night with a kiss and planned another REAL date.
WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER ABOUT YOUR FIRST DATE?
Well ours is unique as we call our first “date” our undate as neither of us really knew if it was a real date or not. That night we hung out and watched 4 movies and he walked me out to my car and kissed me goodnight. Our first real date Dustin took me for a beautiful hike in Banff, we walked and talked the whole way and at the very top there was a beautiful waterfall where he kissed me.
WHEN DID YOU “KNOW’?
Our relationship has had many ups and downs. We have weathered many storms together and come out the other side stronger every time. We believe that if we can make it through everything we have and end up closer in the end, that what we have is forever. So I guess out “knowing” moment would be after we came through times that could have ended us and instead ended up closer and working as a team even better than before.
TELL US YOUR PROPOSAL STORY!
December 25 2015, Dustin and I were spending Christmas in our home, just the 2 of us. We woke up, make pancakes, drank coffee and cocoa, and opened gifts. With only a few more gifts under the tree that part of our day was wrapping up. Dustin grabbed the last gift under the tree and told me that he bought himself a gift in case I hadn’t bought it for him. Me being me forced him to unwrap it in front of me as I like to experience what others get. So he did and showed me the box for a tool. He was very sneaky and had really thought every step through. He got me distracted with another gift and as I was turned away he opened the box for the tool and pulled out a ring box. When I turned around Dustin was on one knee with the ring box opened showcasing a absolutely stunning ring. I was shocked and dumbfounded. We had been together for 5.5 years and talked about getting married but Dustin had always been opposed sharing holidays with other big events. I was so surprised my jaw was basically on the floor and I just stared at him for a solid minute not saying anything, I hardly even saw the ring. After a little while of this Dustin asked me again and I said yes. I couldn’t have asked for a better or more special moment.
