How we met: We attended the same school from kindergarten – 12th grade. Josh was in the class above Carolyn and she was classmates with soon-to-be sister-in-law Amanda Hurst. We were in the same group of friends in high school and participated in many of the same activities and extra curricular activities.
Engagement Story: On April 29, 2010, our 5th year anniversary (unbeknownst to Carolyn…), Josh surprised Carolyn after work to take her out to dinner to celebrate his bonus from work. After spending the entire day at an out of town meeting for work, Carolyn asked Josh if they could just “go home instead”. Of course this was not an option. Josh had reserved the back portion of a restaurant in Lansing in which he has family connections. It is a special place we’ve always gone for family celebrations, birthdays, graduations, etc. The waitress took us back to a private booth, we ordered dinner, and Josh gave Carolyn a bag with a Rottermond Jewelry box in it. The box was empty and when she looked up across the table Josh was holding the ring asking “will you marry me?”.
