My dad and stepmom were married when I was nine, but dated for a year and a half or so before that, and Katie was one of our babysitters, she had babysat Mady since she was a baby and when Matt and I were there she'd babysit us as well and then when Ryan came along, she babysat him as well. I used to give her so much grief, I will definitely admit to being a spoiled brat. We got really close after she graduated from high school and moved away to college, she was basically like an older sister, one that I never had biologically. We would talk nightly on Facebook, she helped me go through the growing pains of being a teenager and navigating high school.
The summer before my junior year, Katie started dating Dan and as the saying goes, "the rest is history!"
