HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
Katrina and Eric met in the 6th grade. They were friends all throughout middle school and high school until Eric moved to Kansas to live with his father. After his first marriage and the birth of his son, Brody, Eric took a job as a semi-truck driver, which lead him back to Oregon where the two reconnected on a fluke.
I had recently gotten out of a long-term relationship as well, and neither of us were looking for anything serious. But after the first visit, we realized there was something between us.
When he told me he needed to go back to Kansas to be closer to his son, I knew I couldn’t let him go. I quit my job, packed my bags, and moved across the country to be with him. In 2018, after the birth of our son Ryder, we moved back to Oregon to be closer to my family. Now we are here—married with two boys, back where it all started.
