How We Met
Eric and I (Jenn) both were attending FoCoMX in 2015, a local music festival for Northern Colorado bands to play at all sorts of bars and restaurants. I was with some friends and Eric was attending with his parents. Eric went to find some of his friends, as his parents didn’t like the band at the time, when he spotted me, a ‘tall blonde’ in the crowd, and stopped to ask me to dance. Normally, I would not give any guy the time of day, especially if I was with some friends, but for some reason Eric caught my eye. Some flirtatious banter was exchanged, we danced, and chatted about our families and by the end of the night, we swapped numbers. A week later Eric coordinated a picnic at City Park and showed up with no shoes on and 15 grocery bags of food…he had everything you could possibly want for a picnic. I was questioning if this was the same guy I’d met a week prior. He thankfully was and we were there for a couple of hours getting to know each other better, and truly the rest is history!
How They Asked
Eric woke me up super early one Saturday morning. He insisted I get dressed, but made me change outfits three different times (he knew I would be happier in a dress than sweats)! As we were driving east in Colorado Springs, I knew something was up, as the only things east are the airport or I possibly a hot air balloon ride, which ended up being the case! Eric had booked a private hot air balloon ride, where he proposed while we were in flight! It was on my bucket list and was even more amazing than I could have ever imagined. He also coordinated our family meeting at the landing location to have a celebratory champagne toast and a take photos.
