John: Natalie and I have spent the last 12 months of our relationship apart with her living in Boston, where we met, and I in school at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. Between the demands of the Marine Corps and 500 miles separating us we managed to see each other for at least a weekend a month since September of 2014.
At some point during the first and most difficult stretch of my time in Quantico, where we would often go several days to a full week with zero communication, I told Natalie I would surprise her by showing up in Boston unannounced. By the time graduation rolled around 6 months later and I hadn't shown up on her doorstep, with relief (but also an air of disappointment) Natalie thought she was in the clear.
Natalie: It was a Friday evening in August and I had just gotten back from a beach day on Cape Cod. I walked into the house to my favorite Van Morrison song playing & saw champagne on the table at the top of the stairs. While still processing what was going on, John then walked back from behind the wall in the living room.
In a complete state of surprise and excitement, we hugged each other and a few moments later, he got down on one knee.
