Misty and Zack
How We Met
Mine and Zack’s love story was truly love at first sight. During my first month at college my friends and I went to a party and I was immediately drawn to the boy playing guitar. Right away, I called dibs and couldn’t stop watching him sing and play, lucky for me he also couldn’t look away, so i felt a little less like a creeper. We kept smiling at each other, and when he winked at me I called extra dibs. After several songs he didn’t quite get the hint that I was waiting for him to talk to me, so we had to send his friend to tell him. We talked until my friends were ready to leave, he got my number, we went on our first date a couple days later, and then I knew I found the man of dreams.
How He Asked
I had the best birthday ever, but when present time rolled around all my boyfriend got me was two Utah Jazz shirts, not gonna lie, I was kinda disappointed. But at the same time, Zack always spoils me, so I thought something was kind of fishy. That night, Zack took me to dinner. After dinner, he said “we should go on a drive. What’s that Canyon you always tell me about?” I told him it was Logan canyon. He said he’d never been there, so I had to give him directions. When we got into the canyon, I told him about this cute little spot my best friend and I discovered a few days before. He said that I should take him to it. As we were pulling up, I saw my best friends car, got super nervous, and on top of that, I see my Mom in the bushes, and she runs away saying “they’re coming”. Zack lead me through the woods to this area he had set up for me. There were white Christmas lights with pictures and flowers on them, a blanket set up on the ground with a bouquet of flowers, his guitar, and a laptop. His sister and my best friend were in the shadows with my mom filming and taking pictures. Zack had me sit down, and he played me a song that he wrote me. He then had me watch a video on his laptop that he had made me that was 19 things that he loved about me. The 19th thing said “I love that there is no one in this world I’d rather be with. You are absolutely the most beautiful girl I’ve eber seen in my entire life, and I love everything about you. A friend of mine once told me ‘it’s not about finding someone you can live with, it’s about finding someone you can’t live without’. There is no way I can live without you. I love you so much, and I want to spend eternity with you, but I gotta find out if you feel the same so, uh, you should turn around.” I turned around, and he was down on one knee and he said “Misty Jensen, you are my best friend, the love of my life, and my soul mate. Will you marry me?”
