Lauren and Joshua
How We Met
We officially met on my first day of high school. I was a sophomore, he was a junior. Unofficially, in middle school he was good friends with my older brother, he knew of me and I knew of him. So when I walked into Foods class on that first day of high school and saw him sitting there, I got butterflies. I had a crush on him for the past year. It took a lot of time and courage for us to start talking and become friends. But later that year, he asked me to Prom. Shortly after that, he asked me to be his girlfriend. The rest is history!
How He Asked
One of my (and my family’s) favorite place on this earth is Lake Powell. We were there this past summer on a trip with some friends and decided to go see Rainbow Bridge, one of the seven wonders of the world. Once we got to the top we took a group photo. Then all of the couples starting taking a photo with their significant other. Once it was mine and my Fiancé’s turn, we took a few posed pictures.
After, I thought we were finished, however, he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I was absolutely surprised!!! Of course I said yes, through the tears and shock. I can’t believe he pulled off the surprise!
