How they met:
Jo + Andy met in junior high back in Calgary. Jo only knew Andy as her older brother's friend so they weren't exclusively friends until about university, when Jo started going to the same church as her brother and Andy. It was still a casual friendship until she graduated from university, got a job, and wanted to dive into rock climbing. Jo knew Andy was a rock climber. So they started hanging out with the climbing crew at least 2 times a week and when Jo moved out into a downtown apartment, they started hanging out a lot more since Andy lived downtown as well.
How Andy proposed:
"It was the day after Thanksgiving, and up until this point, I had been shoving boat loads of information into my brain studying for the dumb architecture exams. Andy had been engulfed in work so we were both pretty fried. It was pouring rain and Andy suggested that we go for a walk to refresh ourselves from spending the whole day indoors. So after much complaining I put on my rain boots and joined him for a walk along the seawall outside. We always share one umbrella, no matter how wet haha! So we were walking along the seawall, Andy patiently listening to me freaking out haha and then he stepped into a massive water puddle and asked if I could hold the umbrella while he bent down to check his shoe. That's when he got down on one knee, pulled out the ring and asked if I would marry him :) YAYYYY"
