Engagement Story





Okay i realize that i haven't posted about david proposing so here it goes!!!

So there we were.....ha ha jk. Okay so we had been planning to go snowmobiling up Heber with david's brother and sister-in-law who live up there so we did! It was david's first time and my 2nd riding a snowmobile. It was awesome and beautiful and so much snow and gorgeous scenery! When we were approaching a really high hill david's bro told us to head to the top while he grabbed his buddy behind us...i thought "that's weird his friend is right there" but didn't think much of it.

When we got to the top david turned off the machine and asked me to pull the camera out that was hooked to his belt, so i did. He got off and i tried turning the camera on because the view was amazing!!! you could see the back of timp a ways off and then just mountains forever it seemed. While trying to turn the camera on he said "what's that?" a few times and i didn't know what he was pointing to..."what's what?" looking around the machine. Finally, i saw the ring hanging from the wrist strap attached to the camera and i think i said "oh" and realized he was down on one knee. He asked me to marry him...although because our faces were so cold, and i assume he was slightly nervous the words were a little harder to get out. Of course i said "Yes!" and then i forgot to take my goggles off when he kissed me so i had to laugh.

We then just waited for his brother and others to join us and they took some pictures, which is why i was slow to post them (salem ha ha). Two funny things: 1st a large of snowmobilers joined us on top of the hill just right around the time he asked me. pretty funny! 2nd i had written in my journal a few days earlier that i hoped and thought he would propose that weekend while we were up there. But i was totally surprised! i decided not to plan on it and i kinda got excited that morning because we went snow shoeing and he had stuff in his pockets...false alarm. There you have it our wonderful awesome story! It was perfect.

I have so much to be grateful for and i hope and pray that i can somehow become like my mom and my grandma's in my own family; always patient, always kind, constantly serving, frugal and eventually one day a dern good cook!! How ended up with all i have i don't know...but i'm not complaining :)
