Maria and Matthew

We met in middle school, he actually asked me to the 6th grade dance. But we never went. We were always really good friends. We were always dating on and off but nothing serious. We started dating sophomore year of hight school till now. We are both 24 now.

I always thought he would propose on our anniversary. When January 18th  came and passed this past year I thought, Maybe next year. A couple weekends later we went up north snowmobiling, just the two of us and our two dogs. We had such an amazing trip we had so much fun.

The last day we were there, we were mostly packed up and ready to go home. He said let’s go for one last ride, he told me to bring my camera and we would take pictures of our dogs. I love taking pictures, so he used that to his advantage.  I set the timer and was running back and forth, as he held our dogs. The dogs were over it so he let them go and wanted one more with just us.  I ran over to pose and he was on one knee.!! Later on I had to ask him what I even said bc it was an fairy tail moment. I was so shocked and it was the most beautiful ring I’ve ever seen!! To top it off he hid champagne and glasses earlier, off the trail. It was the best moment of my life. Plus he asked for my dad first !!
