How We Met
We were set up on a blind date by a sister and brother! I am friends with the sister and Mike and the brother were fraternity brothers at Arizona State! Our friends and the brother’s wife thought we’d be a great match! We might not have crossed paths without their matchmaking skills… After giving him my number through our friends, we went on our first date in August 2018 and never looked back! In October 2018, I decided I was couldn’t think of anything I wanted more than to ask him to be my boyfriend. I did tell him later any future major questions would be on him…
How They Asked
We traveled to visit friends in Portland for President’s Day weekend. Little did we know they would lose power for days due to an insane winter storm within hours of us arriving. We went for a walk with our friends in a picturesque nature preserve near their house. I thought we were just trying to keep moving to stay as warm as we could, but Mike had other plans. Our friends suggested we take a photo together at a bridge with the winter wonderland in the background. I hugged him close to pose for a photo and then he got down on one knee, pulled out a ring, and proposed! I was the love of his life and couldn’t imagine life without me. We spent the day celebrating at a fire pit, trying to stay warm, making the most of a day we would never forget!
