Ashley and Grant
How We Met
Grant and I met during my freshman year of high school. We were in the marching band together. I had heard he was a good bowler, and I wanted to get to know him, so I told him that I wanted to learn to bowl. The rest is history. 9 years later we are the definition of high school sweethearts.
How He Asked
There had always been talk of marriage and engagement, we both knew it was going to happen soon, I was just unaware of when. When Grant and I decided to go to Hawaii for a vacation and to see his Grandma I knew it would most likely happen here. After Grant nagging me about what I wanted to do while we were there, we decided to do a tour of the island. We had set up different places and made a big map of where we wanted to go. Little did I know, what Grant had planned at our first stop. Our first stop was Spitting Caves. it is located just below a high cliff where waves crash underneath and shoot into the cave which ejects the water like a reverse blowhole. It is a popular filming and jumping spot. After climbing down to what I thought was going to be my death in my dress and sandals, it was a beautiful view for a sunrise. Grant and I were admiring the sunrise when he looked at me and said ” I brought you here because it is one of the most famous jumping spots on the island, and I wanted to ask you to jump into forever with me” as he got down on one knee. I was ecstatic and of course said yes!
