We met sophomore year of high school through Jon's friend; we went to rival schools. Though our relationship didn't blossom until prom season of our senior year of high school, we remained dating all throughout our college career at James Madison University.
Jon planned the whole trip! He invited two of our friends to come on our snowboarding trip to Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, New York, January 2015. Jon booked a stay at wildlife refuge since I love animals so much. At the end of our first day of snowboarding, Jon proposed the idea of riding the gondola to the top of the mountain. We packed up all our equipment and headed toward to the scenic ride. Once we had arrived at the top, we walked towards a fence at over looked snow covered mountains and a lake. Jon had asked for a picture together.
I became immediately suspicious when I our friends were very distant from us. Before I could get the others attention to ruin the perfect and romantic moment, Jon jumped into high gear! He reached in his pocket, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. I was in shock and overwhelmed with happiness; that I actually forgot to say "yes"! It wasn't until the gondola ride down that I questioned myself and said, "Did I even say "yes"? Of course, yes!"
