Shauncey and Greg
How We Met
We met on the first night of our freshman year at Quinnipiac University. I was a nervous freshman trying to find some new friends. A new friend of mine wanted to visit a friend from her town who happened to be gregs roommate. Greg was so friendly and sparked up a conversation, making me feel so much less nervous about it being my first night away from home. We stayed good friends until we finally started dating the following year! We have been inseparable ever since.
How He Asked
In July this past year, greg gifted me with a trip up to hike in the white mountains a with our new puppy. One of our favorite things to do together his hike. Come September, we made our way up to New Hampshire for our weekend of outdoor activities. On Saturday morning, we got up early and made our way to the bottom of the mountain. We almost turned around multiple times on our hike, but Greg was determined to get to the top. On our way up, we heard rumors from others coming down that there was a wedding being set up and i kept making kokes with Greg that he wasn’t planning a surprise wedding for me. When we got to then top, Greg found someone to on take a picture of us with mount Washington in the background.
Little did I know, she was actually taking a video for us. Greg got on one knee and asked me to marry but him. I wasn’t so surprised! Especially since he had kept those beautiful ring in husband hiking bag during night the whole 4 hour hike! Greg had even planned to have a special celebratory dinner the following night with both of our parents and siblings.
