Jenelle and Lonnie

How He Asked

For weeks I had been bugging him to go for a hike with our dog. I was so excited when he finally agreed to hike to our favorite spot, even though it was supposed to pour with rain and he wanted to leave at the crack of dawn! The next morning, we left the house by 8 am and started on the trail. The rain was holding off but it was a chilly and misty west coast November morning. As we reached the summit, I started taking photos of our dog overlooking the viewpoint.

As I turned around to see where he was, I realized he was standing behind me. He bent down on one knee in front of me. I immediately started to cry as he told me he couldn’t wait to spend the rest of his life with his best friend and asked me to marry him. I said yes through my tears and as we embraced our dog jumped up on us to join in our kisses! We are now getting married on the day that he bought the ring exactly one year later!
