How We Met
Alex actually knew who I was from HS, but I had no idea who he was. We reencountered 5 years later and hit it off.
How They Asked
Around 4 AM on our anniversary Alex woke me up to go for a hike in the mountains to catch the sunrise and have a breakfast picnic to start the day. After what seemed like the longest drive trough blue ridge parkway we made it to the trail. 2 miles and 5720 ft later as I’m setting up for the picnic I turned around to Alex on his knee.
He said ” You’re the most wonderful person I have ever crossed path with. I love your light, your spirit, that glorious smile. I want to be your partner in crime, and soulmate until the end of time ” It was the easiest yes I’ve ever had to say.
