How Robin & Aaron came to be...
One Friday night Robin went to ESM as she often did. (ESM, aka Eternal Sunrise Ministries, is a gathering of young professional age folks that meet on a regular basis at a home in Raleigh.) Her friend Jason brought along a new guy he had met at Young Professionals (a ministry of Summit church) that week. Robin, always striving to make sure people feel welcome and included, invited him to a party at her home the following evening. Upon realizing he just moved here and was not involved in a Bible study she invited him to attend the one she was in. The new guy, Aaron, came the next night and joined her Bible study. Robin was intrigued by this silent cowboy type, but was certain they didn't have much in common. However, they quickly became good friends. Little did she know Aaron was quietly and purposefully getting to know everything about her to see if she might be the kind of girl he could spend his life with.
As time passed they spent more time together and somehow ended up being the only 2 who showed up for several "group" events. Robin discovered that Aaron and her were a lot alike in many ways. From the house they grew up in to the way they were raised, their families are eerily similar. Robin began to notice herself wanting to spend more time with him, but wouldn't admit to herself that she liked him! Aaron began to realize Robin was exactly the kind of girl he would like to date, but spent some time in prayer trying to decide if God wanted him to pursue a relationship.
In November 2011 after her annual Doughboy party Aaron made it known that he would like to pursue her. Finally... :) On December 11th, after Robin's annual Christmas party they finally had the DTR talk and began officially dating.
Over the next few months Aaron had a couple month long work trips and Robin moved to Wilmington to start a resort ministry. Long distance makes it a little hard to get to know someone!
In April of 2013 Aaron found a job and finally made the move to Wilmington.
On November 11th, 2 years after they first started dating, Aaron proposed. And the rest is history!
