Tell me about your The Beginning!
We met at Browns corner hotel, while I (Erin) was doing promotional waitressing in July 2014. Troy would go to the pub with his brothers and mates and I would challenge them to games of pool. When we matched on tinder it was a lot easier to start talking, and then we bonded over the fact that we both had rottweilers as pets. He is a laid back, funny person and I was smitten by his gorgeous ice blue eyes. We have built a pretty solid friendship during our relationship, which is one thing I treasure the most.
When and where did you get engaged?
We got engaged in November 2019. I was 7 months pregnant, and Troy said he wanted to show me a new track that he found in Tooborac State forest. So off we went, with our dog Ivy in tow. Needless to say, being so pregnant meant a LOT of toilet stops, as you can imagine! Troy must have been getting itchy, because he wanted to reach the top lookout before sunset. We didn’t make it to the top- the track ended! But we still had an amazing view, so we got out of the car and had a walk around. There, among the logs and spiderwebs- there were soo many spiderwebs so it was super romantic… not, and also meant he couldn’t kneel. Surrounded by nature, he asked me to marry him. To celebrate, we had gelato for dinner because it was the only thing open in Heathcote! The perfect afternoon haha
