How We Met
Jacob and I met almost four years ago in college. It was during a town-wide holiday called Snowdown where everyone dresses up to a theme – it was an “intergalactic” theme that year, so I was dressed as an alien. A mutual friend invited us both to a group dinner and it was an instant connection! We got to know each other all night playing foosball and swing dancing.
How They Asked
Three years ago Jacob took me up to these “secret” cliffs on top of a local mountain. These cliffs overlook the green valley, aspens for miles, countless lakes, and are surrounded by beautiful mountains. This October he took me back to these cliffs for a picnic. The sun was setting pink on the mountains and he told me to stand on the cliff facing the valley so he could take a picture of me. When I turned back around, he was on one knee with such a sweet grin and a beautiful ring. He said “It’s time. Will you please be my wife?” I instantly gave him my answer “YES!”, jumped on him, and we both cried tears of joy.
