How We Met

We met through a friend in middle school, and started dating our freshman year of high school!

How They Asked

He wanted to ask me in two separate occasions before he finally asked. The first during vacation, but the ring hadn’t come before we left. The second, we were walking around the trail and couldn’t find the cliff overlook that he wanted to do it at. He then took me to a local park that has a trail, a lake, and a waterfall. We found a bench by the waterfall, ate carrots and cucumbers, and talked for awhile. At one point I said, “this would be a great place to propose to someone” and he looked at me, laughed, and said “it scares me how much we think alike.” Then he got on one knee, and asked me, after 8 years of dating, to keep forever going and be his wife! And of course I said yes!
