Meg + Jeff Engaged!
The year, 2007.
The month, September.
In the city of Waterloo the days were hot, humid and busy preparing for Frosh Week. Neither of them would have ever guessed that they would meet the love of their lives that week, nor did they understand how it would develop. After becoming good friends throughout their university days, they went their separate ways; Meg to complete her Masters in Australia and Jeff to work full time in Alberta, a world apart.
Time went on, Meg finished her Masters and moved to Hamilton for her first full time post-grad job and reunited with old Canadian friends: luckily for Jeff, he was one of them. After a few years and occasional chances to hang out when Meg was visiting her parents, they decided to plan an actual trip together…they were beginning to realize how happy they were together but still not willing to admit it while living in different provinces. As the plans developed for their trip, they became more and more aware of what they were getting into, how happy and excited they were to see each other and, inevitably, realized they should try and find a way to make this a more permanent thing.
Fast forward to today and they have.
Note: the 4runner did not break down on the trip (all 2,200 km) and still runs as strong as their love today.
