Erica and Jeffrey
How We Met
Jeff and I are both special education teachers. We met on the first day of teacher orientation about 3 years ago. For our first date we climbed the tallest mountain in Arizona. Our engagement was pretty similar to how it all started!
How He Asked
We backpacked for four days in the Andes mountains. No showers or electricity, just some good ‘ol fashion camping in Peru. On the last day, we made it to Machu Picchu. My boyfriend was taking a photo of me with my back turned to the camera. All of the sudden he was down on one knee asking me to marry him. I couldn’t even believe this was happening after hiking 26 miles. Biggest surprise of my entire life!! We’re now happily engaged!!
