Grethel and Jason

How He Asked: Jason and I booked an Alaskan cruise together. It was our first “big” trip that we had planned as a couple. At our stop in Skagway, AK, we booked a helicopter excursion to walk on a glacier.  The day was overcast, cold, windy, and wet. Our excursion time was cancelled and, by miracle, we were squeezed into the last available time slot in the afternoon.

With our life vests and glacier boots, we took a helicopter and landed on absolutely breath-taking views of an 800-ft glacier. Just before walking to catch our ride back into town,  I was absorbing the gorgeous views and, as I turned around to walk back, I saw Jason get on one knee and pull out my dream ring! Tears flooded my eyes as  I shouted “Yes!” before giving him the chance to ask.

The best part was that my parents were there to witness everything! People walk the glaciers every year to take home a glacier rock. I went home taking a special rock of my own!
