On June 22, 2022, Olivia took to Instagram to share a heartwarming tribute for the couple’s third anniversary. She shared several heartwarming photos together, including a throwback of the first time Christian and her actually met.
“Three years ago I was not looking for a relationship,” Olivia wrote in the caption. “When my best friends Kristen & Tyler called me and asked if I would be open to meeting their friend Christian I was apprehensive.”
“I was worried it would be the same old story all over again and that all guys were the same,” she confessed. “While my expectations were low, I knew I couldn’t close myself off and make decisions based on fear.”
“I love this photo (the 2nd pic) that Kristen snapped when he wasn’t looking, waiting to meet me for the first time, so sweet, vulnerable, and humble (and with the flowers, I can’t) I’m so grateful for the voice inside me that told me to give love another chance,” she wrote, showing a photo of him standing beside a fireplace in a gray tee-shirt and dark jeans.
“The yin to my yang, you are the epitome of strength through humility,” she concluded. “Thank you for being my rock and restoring my faith in love. You are everything I ever dreamed of and more.”
