      Erica & Bobby

      The proposal story

      It was an event, to say the least lol. Here is the short of the long: Bobby...he’s such a patient man. It took him hours to get me to a private location on Parksville Beach in BC. When he finally got me somewhere where there wasn’t an audience, he looked off into the distance, thought he saw a pod of whales and asked me to check it out on my zoom lens. I didn’t even hesitate! Whales?!! To my surprise, when I turned around he was on one knee. I tried so many times in the past to envision what my feelings would be in that moment...and even though I’ve experienced it, I’m still not sure how to describe it. But I much lol. The best part was how he asked me... "Wanna be my wife?” and I appropriately responded with, “Ya”. And then I said thank you haha.

      How we met
      Funny enough, we lived in the same town, went to the same high school, and knew some of the same people... But our paths wouldn’t cross until 3 years later after Bobby graduated and moved to Stettler while I was still in school. My sister and I worked at the same restaurant for a bit, and when Bobby came back to Airdrie to visit friends, he would have breakfast at the restaurant and hang out with my sister. One day she introduced us... And on that very same day, Bobby offered to drive me home after work, I texted my mom, told her I was getting a ride home from a guy, and then we drove around talking for 4 hours... It was the most instant connection I’ve ever had with someone.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?
      I knew I wanted to be with Bobby for the rest of my life after only being together for 2 months. I was only 17 at the time. I knew what I wanted and who I wanted to be with. I didn’t doubt it then and I don’t doubt it now.

      Favorite part of your relationship?
      Bobby is my Soulmate. We do everything together and we always have. Our relationship is honest, silly, and sometimes secret. We love to laugh, we make each other laugh, and we support each other. No matter how tough life has gotten, we come out better than we went in.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?
      Whatever comes next! Some of the things we’ve talked about for so many years are about to happen. or aren’t too far ahead from today. Marriage, babies, and maybe a home? Seems so traditional and yet, the relationship goals we had that once felt so far away, are now so close to becoming real. I’m getting butterflies just thinking about it.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?
      Oh man...this incredible ring was a TEAM effort I think. Bobby had seen a jacket wedding ring/band in Lawlor so many years ago and I just didn’t care for the Style to be honest. I knew I wanted a cushion or round halo and Bobby carried that with him for sure! What surprised me was how much he cared about the diamond and included my birthstone into the ring as well. I’m so happy he got to work with Mike on that part of the ring! Then I got the privilege to be apart of the second portion of the ring. When Bobby was describing the idea to me, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. So naturally (because I’m so impatient) I tried googling or building the ring he was describing and kept getting double halo rings. I was sold once I saw that. What’s so cool about the ring is each component that went into it making it came from so many different perspectives and made it the piece it is now. I love my ring so much because of the amount of thoughts and opinions that went into it.

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?
      We chose Lawlor because of so many things! We have been shopping with Lawlor for years, they're a local business, their product quality is always the best, there is so much care for customers in the store, we were remembered/greeted by name each time we entered the store...and not just by Mike and Alexis...but by all the staff! Lastly...its the overall genuine atmosphere. It’s that family feeling and it’s the kindness. That's why ♥️

      Tell us your proposal story

      It was so special! Every February we spend a weekend in Canmore and usually do some sort of outdoor activity. Well, that year, Grant wanted to take me skiing and I hadn’t skied in years! So Saturday morning we were on our way to Nakiska for an 8:00 am lesson, and when we drove by Barrier Lake, Grant mentioned there was a nice hike around there that he would like to check out. Well, skiing only lasted about 3 hours because it was seriously -30 plus a wind chill, like sooo cold! So when leaving Nakiska, we stopped at this trail at Barrier Lake. I was like, “Are you serious? It’s way too cold for a hike”. Needless to say, he convinced me to go along and a little way into the trail he suggested we take a timed photo. He got the camera set up and I ran down a little hill to pose. As he came down the slope to pose with me, I noticed the camera wasn’t flashing to indicate the timer. I pointed it out, so he went up to “fix it”, then ran down again. And again, I pointed out that it wasn’t flashing. So I decided to go up to fix it myself and I realized it was set to record, not a timer. He said, “Oh my bad” (playing dumb) and came to 'fix it' a third time while I get back into position. Now we’re posing for the third time, the camera still isn’t working, and I am freezing, so I said “Let’s go, it’s way too cold for this” and started to walk away. Grant replied, “Just one sec.” and as I turned back around he was pulling the ring out of his pocket and getting down on one knee! I was in shock! I think I said, “OMG no you’re not” like 3 times! Once I got over my shock, I said “YES!” and to my surprise, Grant filmed the whole thing! Now we’ve been engaged over a year and are 6 months away from our wedding.

      How we met

      Good ol' Facebook! He says he saw me at the Renschler’s once a long time ago. And I knew of him too as this hottie who was friends with my friend’s older brother.

      Did you know you would end up together or was it a happy surprise?

      I never saw it coming but it was the most pleasant surprise! Now I can’t picture life without him.

      Favorite part of your relationship?

       I smile a lot, but I smile the most when Grant is around. He makes life fun and exciting and is often taking me on neat little adventures. He’s an extrovert and I am an introvert but we balance each other out so well.

      What do you look forward to for the rest of your life together?

      We can’t wait to start a family, Grant is going to be the best protector and partner.

      Why did he or you choose the ring you did?

      Grant did it all, I didn’t have a clue! He truly made it unique, which is what I love most about it. He always tells me he loves me "Head to toe" and got that engraved on the inside of the band.

      How did you hear about Lawlor Jewelry?

      Mutual friends and just being from Stettler! Lawlor Jewelry is the absolute best!
