How We Met

I was tired of meeting guys at the gym (where I work) so I gave online dating a chance…and it worked! We were dating for 7months before I met his kids and then he knew it was for real. We dated for over a year enjoying life filled with outdoor activities like hiking and snowboarding, tubing, biking and wineries before he popped the question in July.

how they asked

We were visiting Southern California to see my family and since our birthdays are a week apart I decided to take him on a hot air balloon ride over the wineries of Temecula for his birthday… He apparently had a plan of his own. He waited until almost the end of the flight and leaned over to tell me some sweet nothings into my ear then next thing I know he’s down on one knee with the most perfect ring!

The ring was personally designed by him after snooping my private Pinterest pages. Champagne flowed and other passengers assisted with pictures to remember the special moment. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect proposal.
