How We Met
Ryan and I met through our mutual friend, Lisa. One night Lisa was out on the town and ran into Ryan and some of his friends. Lisa insisted that they come back to our place to meet her “hot blonde roommate”. Ryan and his friends came stumbling in and we went on our first date shortly after meeting. At the time I wasn’t ready to date but we reconnected about a year later and the rest is history!
How They Asked
Ryan and I planned an extended weekend trip to Sedona, AZ with two of our closest friends. We planned on doing quite a bit of hiking and site seeing so imagine our surprise when we found out Sedona was predicted to get more than a foot of snow just a day before our trip! We decided to just roll with the punches and adjust our plans when we got there. We started out for the day and decided on driving around exploring some overlooks since the trails were snow covered. Ryan was insistent that we at least drive over to the trailhead at Devils Bridge. It was a beautiful day and there were so many hikers commenting that the hike was totally worth it. We decided to go for it and made our way to the top of the trail.
Everyone was waiting their turn to get their pictures taken on the bridge and our friends sent us out for our turn. While we were on the bridge I was commenting on how beautiful it was and before I knew it Ryan was on one knee asking me to marry him! I said YES and it was the easiest question I ever answered. We spent the rest of the trip soaking in every moment and celebrating with our best friends!
