How We Met

We both attended The University of Kansas (KU). As a Freshman I needed a job on campus so I was hired to be a “front desk” girl to check people in and out of their dorms. Fate brought us together because I was the “cute front desk girl” at his dorm. We were friends for 2 years before he got the nerve up to ask me on a date.

How They Asked

Each September we travel back to Colorado, our favorite place in the whole world to end our summer with one last camping weekend. It also happens to be our Dating Anniversary every time we go. This year for our 4th Anniversary, Trenton decided we should climb our first 14er together, I have never done one and was a little nervous. We spent the beginning part of our trip adventuring around Maroon Bells, Aspen and along Independence Pass. The night before our climb Trent came down with Food Poisoning, we weren’t sure if he would be able to make the climb. But 4:00am came we laced up our boots and started up the mountain. The entire hike up he was encouraging me, pushing me and just taking every break I needed (I have bad asthma). When we FINALLY got to the top we sat and enjoyed the amazing view and relished in our climb. He asked me to stand up and take a picture with the cardboard sign I had made to commemorate our hike, and started a video on our GoPro. The words he said were so sweet, “I love you from the tallest peaks to the lowest valleys”. Then Trenton got down on one knee, and asked me to spend the rest of my life loving and adventuring with him. I said “Yes”!!!
