I remember always hearing people say “love happens when you least expect it”, and I always rolled my eyes at that, but last July a guy came into my life unexpectedly and took me completely off guard. What started as a simple conversation about hiking ended up turning into my greatest adventure. He asked me if I liked hiking, I said yes, and the adventure ideas started swirling. He asked me if I wanted company on my mountain summit, I said yes, and we then conquered the 6,000 ft. high summit of Mt. LeConte together. He asked me if I would be his girlfriend, I said yes, and the amount of love that followed was unbelievable. And yesterday, in the midst of our Pacific Northwest trip, atop Mt. Scott, the highest point in Crater Lake, I got to say yes once more when he asked me to marry him. The love I have found with him is something that I never thought possible. When we met I just knew that he was the person I was meant to live this beautiful life beside. When you know, you know. We’re engaged!
