Keith :: Megan and I met on Savary Island, BC. Our families both spend a couple of weeks each summer on the island, we met when we were kids during summer vacation and continued to see each other every year for a couple of weeks before we finally started dating in our 20’s.
Megan :: I met Keith as a child during summer family vacations at Savary Island on the Sunshine Coast.
Keith :: Our friend Hillary had a party at her cabin on Savary Island when we were teenagers.
Megan ::Keith and I knew each other a long time before we actually started dating. So I’d have to say our first “date” was when we decided that we wanted to get to know each other off of the island. I came to Vancouver for the weekend from Edmonton (where I was living) and Keith took me to Cactus Club.
Keith :: Our first kiss happened in the summer of 2002 at a cabin party on Savary Island. We didn’t start dating until summer of 2009 so it took us 7 years to decide that we should be together.
Megan ::We didn’t start dating until summer of 2009 but our first kiss was a few year before at a friends cabin party on Savary Island.
FIRST I LOVE YOU
Keith :: There’s been too many “I Love Yous” said for me to remember when the first one was, but we were dating long distance for the first year of our relationship so I would guess that it was at my old apartment in Vancouver or her old apartment in Edmonton.
Megan ::Sitting on the deck of what would be our apartment for the next four years, I’m pretty sure we both said it at the same time.
Keith :: There was always something special about Megan, even though I only saw her a couple of weeks each year she was someone who I thought about often and who was always special to me. After we finally started dating in our 20’s I realized very quickly that I was going to marry her, it only took me a couple of weeks to figure that out.
Megan :: I would spend every waking moment with Keith and I didn’t get annoyed with anything he did, which usually happens quite quickly for me. Keith is the most patient and understanding person so it made it very easy to know he was “the one.”walking beside me through life.
Keith :: On a beach in California, Megan had wanted to go to Disneyland for a long time so we flew down to LA for a few days to go to the park and visit some friends. On the first night after dinner I took her down to a small beach in Laguna and asked her to marry me and then we went and celebrated at Disneyland the next day.
Megan :: I had been begging Keith to take me to Disneyland for years and we finally booked a trip in November of 2011. I had been having quite a bit of trouble with my back and after flying down to LA and driving to Laguna Beach I was quite tired. We went for dinner and then on the walk back to the hotel Keith begged me to go down to the beach. I was very grumpy, tired and wanted to rest for my big day at Disney the next morning. He had to practically drag me to the beach and as soon as we got down the long set of stairs he very nervously got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I don’t really remember what he said as I was crying so hard and feeling bad for being such a grump. We went to Disneyland the next day to celebrate and they even gave us “just engaged” pins.
