How We Met
Mike and I met almost four years ago when a mutual friend tried setting us up. When he walked into my house during a party I ran up the stairs because I got so nervous/butterflies. When I came downstairs we started talking and couldn’t stop for the remainder of the night. He was unlike anyone I’d ever met before. After that we were inseparable.
How They Asked
Fast forward three and a half years from meeting and being together, Mike is in the Army. The past two years together have been long distance but we’ve stayed strong. When he was visiting our hometown this year for Christmas he brought me to all the places that meant the most to us when he was still here. After a day of joyful reminiscing, he brought me to one of our favorite spots to watch the sunset. The windchill was in the negatives but we still made the trek up the hill towards the castle on top. There we paused and out of the corner of my eye as I was watching the horizon, I saw him get down on one knee. His sister was there to photograph the entire thing. He made that day so special. If only I could remember the words he said, I was screaming so much in happiness!
