An acquaintance of mine from college recently got engaged a few weeks ago, and when I heard the story of her engagement, I sent her a message to find out more details!
I asked her to provide a few details and she gave me permission to use a few of the pictures, and she willingly agreed (which means I get to share with you all!). Here’s the story in her own words!
“He proposed to me on New Year’s Eve, which was the day of our first kiss two years ago. He made me dinner that night and after dinner we were talking about these past two years and he told me he had a gift for me. He had given me a wrapped present which had the Viewmaster inside. As I was flipping through the pictures (which were of us over the past two years), I heard him fumbling with something under the table.
That’s when I knew he was up to something! When I got to the last picture of him with the box, of course I started crying! I put down the Viewmaster and he was on one knee with the ring! He asked me again and obviously I said Yes! I definitely was not expecting anything like that!”
And, in case you’re wondering – this was the very last picture in the Viewmaster:
Just goes to show, guys sure can get creative!

So the blog has taken a backseat to life…what’s new?
I recently spent a wonderful weekend with three of my favorite people in Keystone, CO. It was meant to be a break from life, a peek into the future and just a time to enjoy with old friends. It ended up being that and so much more.
It is amazing how in a matter of three days your life can completely change. Luckily for me, it was a good change. On February 15th, around 4:15 p.m. MT, on top of the main peak in Keystone at the beginning of the Frenchman run, B asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I of course said “Yes!”
It was a moment to remember (and one I will, of course, always remember). The sun was setting, the view was perfect, the company was perfect and I was sitting next to my best friend in a State that we so dearly love. I could not imagine a better way to start a new chapter in our lives.
I just cannot wait to begin the wedding plans, but most of all, I cannot wait for this to come full circle, beginning with a marriage proposal and ending with a move to a new city (Denver).
