Kristen and Mitchell
How We Met
We’ve known each other for forever it seems. He use to play on my brothers little league team and that’s how we first met. We went to different grade schools but ended up going to the same high school. We always had a thing for each other since freshman year but decided to make it official the summer before my junior year/ his senior year. He first asked me out by leaving a poem in my locker and waiting down the hall for me to open it up. I didn’t even need to say yes because the look on my face said it all.
How He Asked
On July 4th 2017 we decided to hike Mt. Katahdin, the highest peak in Maine. We went up a trail called the knifes edge which now I know how it got its name. I’m terrified of heights and ledges and I can’t believe I did it. He was so supportive throughout the entire hike always staying with me and making sure we got to the top no matter what it took. Once we were at the top we were taking pictures near the summit sign and to my amazement I turned around and he was on one knee! I was so speechless he had to ask twice if I would marry him!
