How We Met
When I moved to Baltimore to start my career, I knew of one friend, Mike, who had recently moved to the area. When I reach out to him to grab a bite and get the scoop on my new city, he brought his roommate Zach. The three of us became quick friends and after a few months of hanging out, I began to see Zachary in a different light. It felt like sparks were starting to fly out of the blue.
How They Asked
Since my first plane ride with Zach, I knew I wanted him as my travel partner for the rest of my life. From spending a week in Maui biking down volcanos at sunrise and swimming under waterfalls to only having two hours to see as much of Chicago as we can, I knew he would always make my life full of laughter and adventure.
We took a trip to Scandinavia with another couple and little did I know, I’d be crossing many wild things off my bucket list. On Valentine’s Day, we spent the day in Lapland, Finland driving husky sleds through the Arctic and getting ready for a late dinner under the stars.
We went into our friend’s glass igloo for a champagne toast before heading to dinner and little did I know, right there, under the gorgeous Finland sky, Zachary would ask me to marry him by putting a breathtaking ring in the bottom of a champagne flute. Of course, I said yes! To make the night even more perfect, we saw the northern lights dance across the sky an hour later while at dinner! It was a night I will never forget!
