How We Met
In 2009, I met Lucas at a welcome week party our freshmen year of college at University of Wisconsin-Madison. I knew the moment I saw him that he could be the one. We were inseparable and fell deeper in love everyday. Throughout the 8+ years, we grew up together into the successful adults we are today and went on countless adventures around the US and Europe.

#howtheyasked As college sweethearts from the Midwest, Arizona has also been a special place for us to vacation. On top of that, hiking has also been a passion we both love doing now that we live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
So when we were lucky enough to get Havasupai Falls camping permits, we were ecstatic. Fast forward to us backpacking into the campground on mile 8 out of 12 total on Saturday, May 26. As the warm AZ sun shined over us, we were both sweaty and tired but giddy for being closer to our final destination.
With only him and I around, we took a break to admire the Grand Canyon beautiful canyon landscape surrounding us. As I was taking pictures on my phone in front of him (trying to get that IG worthy pic lol), he called my name. When I turned around he was down on one knee with a gorgeous ring and our GoPro on video to capture the entire moment. After 8+ years of dating, he still took my breath away and I was so surprised. That moment is something I’ll remember for the rest of my life and since day one, he still gives me butterflies — I love him more and more everyday. Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him and go on many more incredible adventures together!
