How We Met
Jacob and I met on Memorial Day 2010. I remember getting invited to a party by a friend (Jacobs sister, Allison) and wasn’t sure if I wanted to go. In the end, I decided to go out.
I met up at my friend’s house (Jacobs sister) – at the time I didn’t know Allison was a twin. Jacob was supposed to be working that night but ended up getting off early and joined us for the party.
How They Asked
We’ve been together for over 8 years! We started creating a bucket list of things we wanted to do together! Riding on a hot air balloon was on his! We had a festival come to town, I mentioned it to him but it was during football season so there was no way I thought we’d end up going. He had his sister buy the tickets, he got in contact with the event coordinator and planned this whole big day.
The event coordinator (who I thought was his friend from hockey) came and told us he could get us a cut in line to ride the balloons…..the lines were SO long. We were both so excited! So we get on and I’m looking around and all of a sudden I turn around he’s on one knee and asks me to be his wife. It was the most magical day!
