How We Met
I met Jacob almost 10 years ago on Halloween weekend freshman year of college. I didn’t have plans for the weekend and reached out to a mutual friend about getting together to celebrate. She invited me out with some of her friends, including Jacob. We hit it off that night and realized that we were in the same Economics class. We started sitting together each class and got to know each other better. We started dating soon after and have been together for over 9 years now.
How They Asked
Jacob surprised me with a trip to Turkey – I didn’t even know where we were going until we got to the airport! We love to travel together; it’s a passion of ours and we have been to 50 countries between the two of us. Once we got to our first stop in Turkey – Cappadocia – Jacob surprised me with a beautiful dress and told me that we were going to go on a “photo tour” the next day.
The next morning, a photographer picked us up for our “photo tour” and when we got to the first location, Jacob took me to a gorgeous structure he had set up “for morning tea”. He then proposed at sunrise with over 200 hot air balloons in the sky. We’ve seen a lot of beautiful places together, but it was the most magical, wonderful view of my life.
