Ashley and Clearson
How We Met: I have known Clearson since Middle School. But our friendship did not flourish until High School. We always had a flirty, sweet, and honest friendship, but after moving back home from Graduate school we reconnected romantically and the rest is history. Since June 12 2010, we have been best friends and truly belong together. Now in our almost late 20’s we connect every day in a different way and are so excited to be together forever.
How He Asked: It was a foggy rainy day in Westchester, NY. He insisted we take our dog for a walk and get some alone time. I was enjoying the rainy breeze so I agreed. We love Kensico Dam in Valhalla, NY and go there frequently in the summer to relax; so when he mentioned going here I was happy because I knew it would be the best place to bring Blake, our puppy.
After a short ride we began walking and embraced the misty rain around us until we came across a stair case that we both somehow never took the time to notice until now. He suggested we check it out and what seemed like a thousand steps later, lol we get to the top of the dam. We were alone discussing life and happiness when suddenly the conversation turned into an emotional and honest moment about us taking risks together.
After some loving and personal comments suddenly I see Clearson get down on one knee and ask me to marry him. Of course I said yes in shock because I couldn’t believe I didn’t see it coming. I was so happy with everything and so excited that this was my reality.
I love him and that moment more then life itself and can’t wait to plan and create a dream wedding day.
