How We Met
We met on Christian Mingle over three years ago! It went from texting to late night phone calls for hours on end, to see movies together. The typical romance story of casual friends turned into soulmates. Our first date was having Chick Fil A, and playing mini golf, but the most magical part of the date was our first kiss! We were slow dancing to “Shot at the Night” by the Killers in the middle of a parking lot overlooking the city. He leaned in close to me and my stomach had butterflies. Sparks flew, I had never felt that with anyone. Pure magic! About 3 months into dating officially, we said: “I love you”. Ever since then we have been inseparable. We have had 2.5 years full of mountain adventures, movie dates, concerts, and dinner dates. So many laughs, tears, good times, and hardships always by each other’s side. Finding your soulmate is all about finding that person who sticks by your side through it all. That’s how I knew he was the one! He is my constant encourager, supporter, and caring shoulder to lean on.
How They Asked
It was the most perfect day to ever exist. We both had the day off and drove up to Vail to explore and relax. We got the most amazing hot chocolate while exploring the town, and taking in the gorgeous views. Being a photographer, I always bring my camera everywhere, no matter the occasion. We drove to the Continental Divide in Loveland Pass during sunset to take some photos together with my tripod, since this was something we did regularly! It was the only time I had ever been to the Continental Divide & had absolutely no crazy wind from how high up we were.
Everything was perfectly still & the snow was untouched and breathtaking. Jeremy was very particular about finding the PERFECT photo spot, which ended up being on top of the mountain. We stared in awe at the stunning mountains, all alone with our amazing view. I took some moments to get my tripod set up, and make sure all the settings were correct. Jeremy began to tell me how much fun he has had with me these past 2.5 years, and how I am his best friend. He told me to look over at some trees. At that moment my stomach felt like when you go on an upside down roller coaster. Butterflies!! This was the moment! I turned around, to see Jeremy on his knee, with the most stunning ring I had ever seen. He had picked it out all by himself. He told me how much he loved me and asked: “Will you marry me?”
I said, “Yes of course!!”
The rest was all a joyful blur of excitement and tons of “I love you’s”, kisses, and a giant bear hug.
This was the best surprise of my life!
