How We Met
We met on a random Friday night after finals week, during the fall semester of 2013. We had a mutual friend where Tj and other mutual friends were out to eat at Denny’s. Our mutual friend had invited Kallista to join them. We spent the whole night together laughing, talking, and adventuring their college that night. We knew it was meant to be ever since.
How They Asked
It all started when we spontaneously wanted to take a five hour trip to the Adirondacks in New York. We have been reminiscing about going there for years, but never had a chance with school and work. On August 10, 2018, we decided to do it. The anticipation and excitement made the trip well worth it. On August 11, 2018, we decided to head out for our 14 mile hike at 6 A.M. We admired the cool 60 degree weather and the company of each other. Once, we have gotten to the top of Algonquin (the second highest mountain in the Adirondacks) we sat and admired the views. We talked, laughed, and shared our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It was a tough and tiring hike, but the view from the top of breath taking. When we had decided to take off and climb another mountain, my fiancé had asked another fellow hiker to take our picture with the mountains in the background, when I had turned around to take the picture… my fiancé down on one knee asking me to spend the rest of our lives together. I couldn’t have been more surprised and honored to take this mans hand for the rest of my life. It will be a moment and memory we will always have every time we visit at the Adirondacks.
