How We Met
Albert and I met in a hotel room! I work for a convention and visitors bureau and he works for the local paper. We were both in the “sample room” (with other people) of a new convention hotel that was building in our area during an event! The photo attached is the very first photo we took together at a blues festival in Greeley, Colorado.
How They Asked
It was our birthday trip as his birthday is June 9th and mine is June 10th. I wasn’t expecting a ring until at least next summer which would have been 4 years of dating.
It was a scene out of a Hallmark movie. It was dark and snowing in a quaint downtown in the mountain town of Ouray. We were walking back to our hotel for supper and he kept on making excuses why we should stay outside. He got down on one knee and pulled out the ring and asked to spend if I would like to spend the rest of my life with him. It was freezing, but definitely worth it! The first official photo of our engagement was by a waterfall hike near town!
