Harvard University Engagement Session :: Kristen + Bill :: with Lorna

“Bill and I grew up in the same town and went to school together since we were 10 years old. Being from a small town where everyone knew everyone’s name, we go back and forth about when we actually first “met.” We have early memories of sitting next to each other in class, because with the last names “Giddings” and “Goddard” we were often next to each other in alphabetical seating. Somewhere around 16 years old, I had the first crush, but it quickly became mutual. We started dating our senior year of high school and 11 years later, here we are. When we got engaged, I joked that if someone told me at 17 that I would be marrying this man, I probably would have laughed out loud. But through years of changes and differences, I am lucky to say we have stayed a constant in each others lives. We spent a lot of time apart, going to separate colleges, living in separate states and at times, separate countries. When you start dating someone at 17 years old, you grow up together. So while we have both changed, grown older and cultivated our individual lives, we’ve stayed together and part of me still feels like there is absolutely nothing different than those two kids back in high school.”

Congratulations, Kristen + Bill!! xoxo, The OLAS Team
