How We Met

Ben came into the bar I bartend at a couple of years ago. I served him and his buddies that night. He tried to be a smooth talker with me, but I was just in work mode and not showing interest. He, later on, told me he told one of his buddies that “he was going to marry that girl one day.” Later that night he went home and found me on Instagram and wrote me to let me know I filled his beer up too much (sly, I know. Lol) We talked a little on Instagram messenger for the next 3 months. I finally agreed to meet up with him for a drink, we have been inseparable ever since. Over the next months, our connection began to grow and grow. I knew I finally had found my person.

How They Asked

12/12/20 I thought we were going up to Mt. Shasta for Christmas photos that I had planned a few weeks prior, little did I know Ben had bigger plans already arranged with my best friend who actually is a professional photographer. We took pictures with our dogs, then I told Ben I wanted to hike up to the top of the heart lake and get some photos on some canvases for our house. He wanted to go up there this entire time without asking me and making things obvious, so it worked out perfectly. We made the trek up in the snow trying to beat the clouds before they covered MT.

We snapped a few photos then Ben looked me in the eyes and said “I have a surprise for you” and then got down on one knee. I was in so much disbelief and asked him 4-5 times if this was a joke… He even had champagne and custom glasses that had our names and date, and “She said yes” engraved on them. It was the best day of my life.
