We met at Pacific Lutheran University our freshman year. After a midnight kiss on the Eve of 2008 Dustin asked Holly to be his girlfriend.
After four years at PLU, we temporarily settled in opposite cities. But alas! We put a year of long distance (and way too much familiarity with I5 from Portland to Seattle) behind us and made the move to Queen Anne! We settled into the tiniest condo overlooking Magnolia and the Olympic Mountains and jumped into life in the city.
On Saturday, August 11 after a full day of cycling (that included a venture to Golden Gardens) Dustin took Holly on a picnic at Discovery Park. Sitting up on the bluff, looking out at the (almost not) sun setting over the Olympics Dustin proposed.

5 things about Holly (as told by Dustin)
