How We Met
Nick an I met about 3.5 years ago in North Dakota as college students. We met through a mutual friend group and have been dating ever since!
How They Asked
Nick graduated a year before me and moved back near his hometown in the twin cities. My last year as school was tough since he was 5 hours away, but we made it work. After I graduate in May I moved back home as well and started my new job almost right away. In mid-July (right around our anniversary) we decided to take a weekend trip to the west coast. When we were there we spent the short time we had visiting creameries, breweries on the beach, and taking in all of the scenic views.
We ended our day of touring at a beautiful winery. Once we got There Nick walked me away from the crowds of tourist and into the vineyard. Here he asks me to spent the rest of our lives together! This wasn’t a normal proposal though… Nick had originally picked out a ring weeks before this trip. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Barry had a different idea and the ring couldn’t be shipped to him in time. Nick found out the night before we left for our trip that he wouldn’t have the ring and needless to say he was freaking out!
But with help from my family, they figured out a different plan. Instead of proposing with the ring he had purchased, he proposed with the ring my grandpa proposed to my grandma with. It was one of the most sentimental things anyone could ever do for me and I will never forget it. Many happy tears were shed in wine country that night.
