Michele and August
how we met
Michele and August both had a mutual friend who they had gotten to know from activities like snowboarding, backpacking, and camping. To August, the friend spoke highly of her ‘awesome friend Michele who traveled all over the world’ and joined her on fun weekend excursions .’ To Michele, she raved about August and how ‘adventurous, well-traveled, and entrepreneurial’ he was, and how ‘he likes photography too!’They finally met one evening in November 2016 around the time their mutual friend was moving away. They exchanged numbers and kept in touch and got to know each other via messaging while August spent the holiday season in India for work. A few days after arriving home, in early January 2017, they had their first of many adventures.
how they asked
It took 8 months for the ring to be created, so when August finally received it, he was too excited to wait. We are new to Washington state and decided to checkout a local hike one Saturday at Flaming Geyser State Park. It was a beautiful day, we had our puppy with us and we were just enjoying the beauty around us. We stopped to rest and as we got up to go, Michele stood but August stayed kneeling and popped the question. It was perfect.
