How We Met

I was going for a run in the mountains when I had stopped to look at my phone for some direction.  My “husband to be” was riding his mountain bike and was headed toward me.  He looked very attractive so I stalled as he was getting closer to me. He stopped right in front of me, struck up a conversation, we chatted and we exchanged phone numbers.   One week later we went on our first date.

How He Asked

He was going to race his mountain bike in Finale Ligure, Italy and he wanted me to come travel around Europe with him. We headed straight for Zermatt Switzerland because he wanted to see the Matterhorn.  On September 28th we woke up, packed a picnic and took a helicopter tour around Zermatt and the Matterhorn.  The helicopter dropped us off at a near by mountain and we hiked around the five famous lakes near the Matterhorn.  We asked a group our tourists to take our picture and that is when he dropped to one knee and asked if I would Mary him.  In the evening he arranged a horse drawn carriage to pick us up and take us to dinner.  It was magical! We then set off for two weeks exploring Switzerland, Italy and France recently engaged.  It was the happiest two weeks of my life!
