We’re Engaged!!

As you probably already know, Jon and I met January 2007 in Mexico and have been living and travelling together since August 2007.  After a year and a half of travelling, we decided that we really do like each other and want to be with each other forever. 

Our first kiss was April 11th, 2007 in the Regina International Airport.  I was so nervous flying up there to see this random guy I met in Mexico, but felt I knew so well.  He made all my fears melt away the second I left the customs area as he walked right up to me and kissed me.

On June 20th, 2009 Jon had planned a day for us that included a picnic in Kiwanis Park.  While we were there we saw a young couple getting pictures taken for grad, a newly wed couple having photos taken as well as a small wedding ceremony for yet another couple.  After we left the park, we received a phone call from Jon's friend, Jayson, who said he was just in a car accident and asked us if we could pick up his cousin from the airport.  We agreed and made our way to the airport just after 4pm.  At the airport we walked around and when we got near the baggage carousels, Jon pointed towards the arrival / departures monitors and said "Hey, what's that?"

On the monitors were pictures of us from our travels.  I nervously asked Jon what was going on while pointing to the pictures.  I heard a click from behind us and there was Jayson standing there taking pictures of us.  The next picture I saw was taken in Maui and on it read "Krista, will you marry me?"

Jon got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!  Of course I said yes through my tears!

We are going back to Seoul in August for another year of teaching and travelling.  We have tentatively set a date of April 2011 to be married in Mexico, back to the place where we started our love story.  Start saving your pennies now ;)
