How We Met

Zak and I met when we were in highschool. He was in one of my classes sophomore year and I just couldn’t stop looking at him. I asked my friend Chloe who was in the class if she knew him and to my surprise she did. She introduced me to him and in the back of mind I was like I really like this guy. That whole year we hung out and became good friends. The school year ended and summer came, we kept in contact all summer. I finally ended up telling him I had feelings for him and come to find out he also had feelings for me too.   Junior year started and I remember him texting me during my geometry class asking me to be his girlfriend, I texted him back and said no.

I told him if he wants to ask me out he needs to ask me in person. So during class I told my friend Brittany that Zak is going to ask me out and I told her that I saw a movie where the guy proposes to his girlfriend and she said no and then laughed and said I’m just kidding of course, so I told her I was going to do that to Zak. So after class ended I walked out of the room and there he was waiting for me. He pulled me aside and said Becca will you be my girlfriend?

I looked at him with a straight face and said no. The look on his face melted my heart! I looked at Zak and said I’m just kidding of course! And he had the biggest smile on his face. Since that day we have been with each other for 6 years.

How He Asked

My best friends family and my family were going on a “family” vacation to Alaska to celebrate there youngest daughters high school graduation. The last day that we were in Valdez we hiked up the mountain to see Worthington Glacier because it says that you can walk on the glacier. So my whole family and my best friends family were hiking up this mountain single file because that’s all that could fit at a time.

It was starting to rain a little bit and the farther up the more cold it was getting, so we get about half way and everyone is so exhausted that we all just decide to go ahead and get couple pictures and be done. Zak and I were the last ones to get our pictures taken. As we are snapping away I turn to look at him and at my surprise he is down on one knee with this beautiful white box out in front of me with this gorgeous ring inside.

As tears filled my eyes I look at Zak and he says those precious words “Will you marry me?” All chocked up all I managed was a nod yes.

And then I take another look at the ring and said oh man that’s so pretty! Put it on!!
