Kim and Joe

How We Met: Joe and I met in 2011 at a local bar on Mill Avenue located in Tempe, Arizona. I must say I was not expecting to interact with guys or try my hardest to win someone over. It was just a night out with some girls looking to have a fun night. While at this popular college bar, us girls were enjoying some drinks just chatting with each other, when I noticed this cute boy glancing my way. I didn’t think anything of it. Just smiled back and kept talking to my friends. After exchanging glances a few times, I notice the guy start to make his way over to where we were standing. He said hi and tried to start up a conversation. I can’t recall what he said, but I remember thinking, wow he must be really nervous or just really drunk! I interrupted to introduce my name and ask for his. From there we really hit it off!

How He Asked: Joe and I had planned a weekend trip to Flagstaff. This trip included a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the National Forest. During this beautiful, scenic ride through the forest, we stopped for hot chocolate and Smore’s by a fire! While chatting with another couple, enjoying ourselves, Joe suggest we walk around and look at the snowy scenery. He then grabs my hand and off we go! While admiring this beautiful and perfect moment, he stops and gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him! I was so surprised and kept repeating Oh my God! I said YES, Of course! While I was distracted earlier by smores, Joe had asked a worker to take photos of the whole proposal! It was so perfect and romantic! I am the happiest girl ever!
