how we met
We met on a Halloween weekend at Lehigh University. Mike was a sophomore resident assistant in the McClintic-Marshall freshmen dorm while Jordan was a resident on the floor below. Mike was stuck on duty during Halloween and bumped into Jordan while making his building rounds. We struck up conversation in the hallway (Jordan was dressed up as cub scout!) and spoke for over an hour.
how they asked
We had been dating for 7+ years when he proposed. I love to surprise Jordan, but knew that any “trip” would potentially tip her off. Instead, I planned a typical weekend trip to the Lehigh Valley and started at their favorite place, the Easton Farmer’s Market. From the market, we visited her family then sent out for a winter walk at Lake Nockamixon. Before she knew it, Mike was down on one knee (near a disc golf hole – one of his favorite activities). They celebrated by grabbing ice cream at their favorite creamery, Owowcow and then headed out to a local brewery. Mike coordinated with both families who were waiting at the brewery when they arrived.
