I officially feel old saying this, but I have known Mason and Olivia since before they every started dating...and now they are ENGAGED! I met them while working with both of their parents when I had a full-time job and saw them become best of friends, begin dating, and eventually get engaged less than a month ago. It was so surreal to meet them in Colonial Williamsburg for an engagement session before he moves to Atlanta, and it's even crazier to think about them getting married next May!
Seeing these two together was a reminder of how much they care for other people and for each other - all without losing their senses of humor and goofiness. Mason can make Olivia laugh, and when he looks at his future bride he can't help but smile. I can only imagine how happy they were when he proposed amidst a sea of candles on her birthday - which just so happens to be Christmas Day as well! Together they are bubbly, in love, and excited about the life ahead.
Mason and Olivia - I wish you all the best as you start your engagement season, especially as you begin a new long-distance relationship. With the Lord as your foundation and your love for each other in full view, I know the time will fly by until you can finally be together and not have to say goodbye. Congratulations, you two!
Olivia, you have the most natural smile!
