Our Engagement Story (& Photo Shoot)

Last month, John proposed to me in the wee hours of the morning. That's right, Ink the Print will soon be a "husband & wife operation"!

The reason for this is because it was incredibly cold, neither of us had snow suits or proper boots, and she was DOMINATING me. For those who don't know Kaitlyn, she is FAST and she is STRONG. When I wasn't being chased...
