Cassie and Colton’s one year anniversary
According to Entertainment Tonight, Colton and Cassie ultimately decided to choose November 14 as their anniversary date. It was the first day they were not surrounded by The Bachelor cameras.
Colton planned a romantic surprise trip for Cassie to celebrate. She had no clue where they were going. Both of them have many differences that the other has had to learn to embrace. In the beginning of their relationship Cassie did not like traveling, she was a homebody. Being with Colton, who loves to travel, has made her give it a try and she enjoys it now. And, Colton loves surprising her. He has admitted to being a romantic person.
They recently also celebrated an early Christmas together in Colorado. Following Christmas the two went to Vegas to bring in 2020. Nobody knows when Colton will decide to pop the question, but they have both made it clear they are in no rush. If they are meant to be together forever then rushing an engagement won’t change that.
