Kristin and Blade
How We Met
Blade and I met on the very first day of fall semester in 2013, my senior year his sophomore year, at West Virginia University. We instantly became friends, we were just drawn to one another. Sitting together and talking every day in class, I don’t really remember much from that Geology class other than knowing I was falling for this amazing southern gentleman.
How He Asked
We were planning a trip to South Carolina to visit his family with another couple. Three of them (not me) wanted to go skydiving! Skydive Carolina happened to be on the way to the town in South Carolina we were visiting.
The morning of the jump, it was normal, I didn’t pick up on anything!
After we arrive at Skydive Carolina, Blade and the other couple had to sit through a safety class while I sat with his parents. HIs parents were so calm and cool, it was just a normal day (besides Blade going SKYDIVING! lol)
Blade, the other couple, and the instructors went up in the airplane, then an instructor walked over to Blade’s parents and me and asked if we would like to go out on the field to watch him parachute down. I was like heck yeah! That would be amazing, I could get some really cool pictures of him landing.
After everyone jumps and lands, Blade walks over to me, he unzips his jumpsuit and he is wearing a black t-shirt saying “Will you marry me?” He got down on one knee and asked me to spend forever with him.
I instantly freak out, start crying, everything you could think of! I was in total shock and I felt like I went skydiving with all the adrenaline I was feeling.
It was the best of my life! I”m so lucky to be able to spend the rest of my life with my amazing man!
