How we met: We met when I first moved to Idaho 12 years ago, when I was in 4th grade. He was in my youth group, and I knew him for years, but we were both too shy to talk to each!
Finally, the summer before my senior year of high school,we went on the same mission trip to Mexico with our church. He asked for my number on a napkin, and we started dating a few months later. We’ve been together for 4 years when he proposed!
how they asked: He told me we were driving to Portland for my birthday. He wouldn’t tell me ANYTHING!
It’s about a 9 hour drive to Portland, and he was driving like a MANIAC, like we had some time crunch, but he wouldn’t tell me. He asked if I wanted to stop by Multomah Falls. We walked towards the falls, but I didn’t want to get too close because the water was spraying everywhere!
He kept trying to get me closer, but I was persistent and totally unaware. Then he got down on one knee in front of the waterfall and asked me to marry him. I couldn’t believe it, I kept asking “Seriously???!!!” I forgot to say yes for a while! Then, my dad popped out of the bushes, he was taking pictures the whole time! We drove back home that day and I had a surprise engagement party waiting for me!
