How They Asked
My (now fiancé) and I booked a trip to Shenandoah National Park for the 4th year in a row. This year we decided to visit during fall foliage. After a hike up Upper Hawksbill trail, we reached the summit and enjoyed the views. After a little while, he put his arm around my shoulder, and said “I have to ask you something”. I said “okay, what is it?” Not thinking I was going to be asked the most important question in my entire life, he turned to me, got down on one knee and I totally blanked out on the rest! My knees buckled, my heart was racing, and I screamed yes to my best friend. At that moment I turned to my right where a photographer was capturing the moment. He hired one that got photos of this moment for us during and took some amazing shots afterwards. I cried during him asking and during our after shoots. I can’t wait to marry the man of my dreams. Oh and my ring? Oh my goodness. I can’t stop staring! Ahh!
