Julie and Zachery
I never would have expected to meet the love of my life at my 8-5 corporate job. I work for one of the corporations subsidiaries and he worked in the building on a contract doing private security. We saw each other every day and soon began to form a friendship based on our mutual love for spending time on the ocean in Prince William Sound. We had so much in common, we both love the state and enjoy everything it has to offer us… plus I loved his carefree and sarcastic sense of humor. Our first date was the first weekend in June, 2012. Zach had a bear hunt planned for that weekend with his brother in law, Van. I guess we have him to thank for finally bringing us together because if it wasn’t for Van cancelling last minute, who knows when we would have gone on the date! Zach asked me at about 3:00 pm on a Friday afternoon if I wanted to go bear hunting with him for the weekend. Of course I couldn’t say no. I wanted to spend more time with him and had unsuccessfully hunted the weekend prior with my family. We spent the entire weekend head over heels for each other and I knew right then that I would never have to wonder who I was supposed to be with. I ended up taking a beautiful seven foot black bear, which was the cherry on top of the best weekend I had ever had.
