How We Met
Ethan and I went to the same high school but did not start dating until we reconnected in college in 2012. He was visiting his friend, Chris, for the weekend and I was with my best friend, Blake, and we all decided to hang out and have dinner. Well, Blake let me know that she was interested in Chris and asked if I could help set them up.
Of course (being the best friend ever) I helped which allowed me to spend time with Ethan! We had so much fun together and we really hit it off. Now, in 2018, Chris and Blake have been married for almost a year, and Ethan and I are now engaged!
how they asked
Ethan and I have had many adventures together since 2012, but nothing compares to our trip to Montana two weeks ago. Ethan and his family have been visiting Montana for years (we live in North Carolina), and for the first time I was able to join them to experience his favorite place in the world. We flew into Bozeman and were excited to find out there was a meteor shower going on and spent our first night there watching shooting stars as we sat on the back porch of our Airbnb. Every time he saw a shooting star I would ask what he wished for, but of course he refused to tell me. Friday, August 10th, started with hikes to the most beautiful places and was followed by an amazing dinner. After dinner he said we would go to Hyalite Lake to watch the sunset.
Once there we started walking the opposite way of the sunset and I was concerned! But then I got the surprise of my life when he began telling me how much he loved me, and how he really hoped his shooting star wish would come true. He got down on one knee (used my full name!) and asked me to spend forever with him. I of course said yes! I am so excited for our greatest adventure yet!
