Welcome! Thanks for being a part of Our Story!
It was a cold winter night in January of 2010 when Anne and Scott met at Kate's Pub
in Seattle, WA, courtesy of their mutual friend, Tyler Davis. Scott told her of his job at Microsoft,
wooing her with the inner workings of computer operating systems, and she told him of her adventures saving lives in remote corners of the world.
By Valentine's Day they were ``special friends,'' as Anne's mom liked to say.
Teaching Anne how to throw darts at Kate's Pub. She already knew...

It was the cat's meow!

After a year and a half of great fun skiing, camping, and loving life together, graduate school beckoned and Scott left for Boston to begin a
Ph.D. program at Harvard in machine learning and computational neuroscience.
A year of long distance Netflix dates later, Anne followed and started her Master's degree at Boston College to become a women's health nurse practitioner.
Trading professional salaries for problem sets wasn't easy, but with the help of great housemates and classmates, they've grown to love their new home.
Anne graduated in May, 2014, passed her NP licensure exam, and was on such a roll that she signed up for the Ph.D. nursing program at BC.
The summer took Anne to the Amazonian rainforests of Peru to provide medical care, Scott to Cape Cod and China for machine learning conferences, and both
of them to Hawaii for a MacDougall family vacation. At the end of this whirlwind tour, they took a retreat to Scott's family camp in the Adirondack Mountains
where Scott finally popped the question...
Mariners vs Red Sox. You can tell where Anne's allegiance lies.
MacDougalls and Jewetts in Hawaii!

Bike trip on Cape Cod.
Even though Scott's family and his best friend from home,
Andrew Cahill, were there, Scott managed to convince Anne to escape with him on a private canoe ride.
They paddled around the lake (Scott was being oddly romantic Anne recalls), and they stopped at
Diamond Cove. He asked her to turn around and relax
and let him paddle home, but before doing so he dropped a waterproof box in the water behind them. She turned around and saw it, and thinking someone
had lost their keys, they paddled back to retrieve it. Inside was a letter to Anne, love Scott. He got down on one knee in the canoe and asked
her to marry him, and she said YES! He put the ring on her finger, complete with ring flotation device (just in case!), and they paddled home to share
the great news with family and friends.
They arrived back in Boston Tuesday morning, just in time to grab the keys to their new apartment and head off to the
first day of fall classes, and the first day of the rest of their lives together!
She said YES!
The very special canoe trip.
