How We Met
Spencer and I met while hiking on the same trail in Colorado. We both attend college in this beautiful state, with Spencer a senior at The United States Air Force Academy and I at The University of Colorado Colorado Springs. It was a Sunday afternoon, and the trail was pretty heavily trafficked that day. I had my then 5 month old golden-doodle, Willow, hiking with me. Willow had little manners then (still kinda doesn’t haha), so she liked to jump on people. As my dog and I were walking through a narrow part of the trail, we passed a handsome young man, and Willow took that as an opportunity to make a new friend. I wasn’t made she jumped this time. Spencer and I then started talking, and the rest is history.
how they asked
I received a letter, from my now fiancé, a few days before the proposal. The letter was so sweetly written and gave me instructions for the coming weekend, such as pack a bag for an overnight stay and be ready by 8:00 AM Saturday. When Saturday arrived, we just started driving, and I had no idea where we were going. It was almost a little frustrating for a type-A personality like me (haha). We kept pulling off the road to “check out the mountains” here in beautiful Colorado. By the third stop like this I said, “I’ll just sit in the car and look. I’m cold.” Little did I know when I finally got out of the car (stubborn me), we walk down this little path to a breathtaking lookout spot called Sapphire Point. As I am looking out over this postcard of a backdrop, I turn around to see my love on one knee. I was overwhelmed with joy!
