Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth got engaged last year on ABC’s The Bachelorette, and they are still going strong a year later. Just as JoJo Fletcher edges closer to her final rose ceremony, Kaitlyn and Shawn celebrate the anniversary of their engagement. What’s the latest from this duo?
Shawn and Kaitlyn were drawn to one another during that first night of Bachelorette filming, and despite plenty of hiccups along the way, they got engaged during the final rose ceremony. The two have been almost inseparable ever since they got to go public as a couple, and they took to social media this week to make note of their big anniversary.
Bristowe posted a photo on Instagram showing her kissing Shawn at their final rose ceremony, and she wished him a happy anniversary. Kaitlyn shared some heartfelt sentiments, and the post quickly racked up nearly 100,000 likes and more than 1,000 comments. The Bachelorette star noted that the two of them have both grown a lot this past year and look forward to many more years together.
Not to be left out, Booth posted a photo of him with Kaitlyn on Twitter and noted the “one year engagement-versary” with his lady. The two keep their Bachelorette fans updated on their lives together via social media, and for the most part, they have been just living life together in Nashville, Tennesse, where Shawn was living prior to doing the show. She moved to Nashville shortly after the finale of her season aired, and the two shared not long ago that they had moved into a new place together.
From the sounds of things, Shawn and Kaitlyn may be planning a lengthy trip this summer. Bristowe recently asked via Twitter whether anybody was looking to rent out their home this summer, and she joked that it was for a friendly couple with a cute dog. She specifically mentioned the area of Okanagan, which is in British Columbia, Canada. As Bachelorette fans know, she is originally from Vancouver, so it looks like these two may be looking to have a relaxing summer a few hours away from where she grew up.
Quite a few Canadian Bachelorette fans quickly responded to Kaitlyn’s tweet, and if they do land a place in the area, it sounds like they will have a gorgeous and fun summer in wine country ahead. Nashville may be home for Kaitlyn and Shawn these days, but they’ve done plenty of traveling and appearances. It looks like they’ve got a relaxing summer on their minds.
What about wedding plans for the Bachelorette duo? Kaitlyn and Shawn had previously said that they would probably start making plans after the first of the year, but since then, they’ve detailed that they aren’t in a rush and are enjoying things just as they are. Bristowe and Booth have talked quite a bit about how they know they are perfect for one another, and they do look forward to having kids together, but a formal wedding isn’t a huge priority to them.
Next up for “Bachelor Nation” is JoJo Fletcher’s turn as the Bachelorette 2016 lead. Ben Higgins may have left JoJo heartbroken when he chose Lauren Bushnell, but now Fletcher is in the midst of her own journey to find love. The new season premieres on Monday, May 23, and teasers indicate that fans will get to see Kaitlyn pop up once or twice as the season airs.
Kaitlyn and Shawn have faced plenty of drama in the time that they have been together, with some claiming that they are only together for the appearances and money they can make as a pair. However, Bachelorette fans love seeing them together, and as Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth celebrate the anniversary of getting engaged, many celebrate right with them and hope that they have more anniversaries to share as a couple in the years ahead.
