The Voice‘s Jordan Smith is experiencing a winning streak.

The singer, 21, proposed to the love of his life, Kristen Denny – and, as he shared with glee on Twitter, “She said YES!”

It all went down on New Year’s Day, when the 21-year-old vocalist announced their engagement with a sweet photo of the spouses-to-be and her new ring.

And then there was his victory on NBC’s singing competition in December, which came on the heels of him topping Adele on iTunes.

“[Denny] came on stage and hugged me and just told me, ‘This is it,'” Smith told PEOPLE of what happened after his name was called. “That was such a special moment.”

But this duo have been sharing their cute connection long before the spotlight shone onto their relationship. Read on to find out why Smith and Denny define #relationshipgoals.

1. The Christmas Tradition

Fans can expect a new Smith and Denny Christmas ornament every year. Along with an image of their 2015 decorations, Denny wrote via Instagram, “Finally got our ornament for this year! #christmastradition #ourfourthchristmas”

2. The FaceTime Sessions

Having been together for about four years, Smith and Denny didn’t let distance come between them when he filmed The Voice in Los Angeles and she continued working as a speech language pathologist back home in Kentucky. Apple came to the rescue, leading to this screen shot of a FaceTime date they shared in November.

“When your boyfriend is on the other side of the country, this is what #datenight consists of!” she penned in the caption.

3. The Lovely Presents

Smith spoke a whole other love language on her birthday in December, surprising her with a stunning purse and flowers.

“A new @katespadeny bag earlier this week and these beautiful roses delivered to work today,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m definitely a lucky girl! Blessed to have a wonderful man in my life who is so good to me! I love you, sweetheart!!”

4. The Road Trip

If life is a highway, Smith and Denny will ride it all night long – and that’s just what they did in September. “Random adventures with my favorite guy!” Denny wrote of their jaunt through Virginia.

5. The Anniversary

The future Mrs. Smith penned an emotional tribute to her man on their anniversary on July 19. “Three years ago, Jordan and I went on our first date,” she shared in the touching Instagram post. “Some days, it’s hard to believe it’s been three years. Some days, it feels like we’ve been together forever.”

Denny continued, “I can’t imagine my life without him in it. He is thoughtful and patient. He never fails to make me feel loved and special. He’s my best friend. My soulmate. He prays for me, encourages me, and makes me laugh. He’s the answer to my prayers! I love you baby, and I am so blessed to have you in my life! Three years down and looking forward to many more!”
