When people ask how we met, we just smile and say, “On Facebook.” Their reaction is usually one of laughter and a bit of disbelief. It’s the truth though. We met and fell in love on Facebook.

Brian was a “mutual friend” and when he saw a picture of me he remarked, “Hey, you’re kind of cute.” After a few messages back and forth we had our “official” first date. We’ve been together for 3 years now, starting with our first date on March 26, 2014 at C.J. Avery’s in Laconia. I had to pinch myself several times. I was in college at UNH and hadn’t had much success in the dating department. Brian seemed perfect, but he was older. Older than my brother! Would he really be interested in a younger girl like me? Well, lucky for me, he was.

 Brian proposed on Christmas morning. I couldn’t have been more surprised, or happier. Grady, our golden retriever, delivered the ring on his collar with a homemade bow made by his mother. We are truly the perfect match for each other. We’re both fairly quiet people and are perfectly content staying home and watching movies together. When we’re not nestled in we are usually grabbing a bite to eat, out on the lake or motorcycle, snowmobiling, or walking the dogs. We love our animals, Grady our golden retriever, Bailey, our labradoodle and Autumn, the cat we rescued from the woods behind our house. 

September 16th will be the happiest day of our lives. It will be the day we share our love with our families and friends and celebrate our everlasting bond. It will be the beginning of a lifetime of Erinn and Brian Swan. together forever.
