How They Asked
Willie and I were visiting Peru and hiked up the beautiful Humantay Lake on our last day before coming back home. My friends suggested Willie and I take a picture facing the mountains to capture the breathtaking views, and though all my friends and family were in on this surprise, I was completely oblivious. I turned around to find Willie down on one knee and couldn’t help but cry (ugly-cry that is). I thought reaching the top of this hike would be exhilarating, but it was this very moment that left me overwhelmed with joy.
