Samantha and KJ
How We Met
KJ and I met our junior year of high-school in chemistry class. So you could say we had chemistry from the start ;)
How He Asked
After almost six years of dating, we met one summer day for a little getaway at Glacier National Park. We drove “Going to the Sun Road” and hiked Haystack Pass. At the top of the hike we enjoyed the view over Heaven’s Peak. He told me to turn around and put my arms out so that he could take a cool picture like the one’s he had seen online. After he took the photo, I turned around and walked back to him sitting on a rock. He told me he had written something special that he wanted to read me. He pulled from his pocket a tiny folded piece of paper that had be torn out of his pocket calendar. He opened it up and began to read it. “For over there is Heaven’s Peak, and for you and me the view is hard to beat. I have been praying to the Lord above, if He can spare an angel for me to love. He said that would be just fine, and it happens to be that you are made to be mine. I have never seen a more beautiful person in all my life, so please darling, make me the happiest man in the world, and be my wife.” He proceeded to get down on one knee and place the ring he had picked out on my finger. We cried and hugged as we made our way back down the mountain.
