How We Met
Nick and I met when we were 13 when we were freshmen in high school. We had two classes together and instantly felt a connection. We soon became best friends and inseparable. We shared each other’s first kiss at 14 (oh man was it awkward) and he asked me to be his girlfriend at 17. Ever since then, it has been nothing but a magical ride. Ups, downs, and all-around amazing. We are each others’ “firsts” for everything, and now we can be each other “lasts”. He asked me to marry him at the age of 24 and we have forever to go.
How They Asked
He had let me know that he wanted to take me hiking to Lions Head, and I was so happy to go! We hiked the beautiful trail for 2 hours before we reach the highest peak. I had my back turned to him as I was admiring the view, and when I turned around, there he was, on one knee, looking as cute as ever.
Honestly, I think I blacked out throughout his entire speech because I don’t remember anything other than being in complete shock! I was about to say yes to my BESTFRIEND! I thought to myself… how crazy?! I said yes and my bestfriend jumped out from the bushes to my surprise. A week later I am still in shock at the fact that I get to spend the rest of my life with my forever love.
