(pssst. there’s a song that goes with this post, click here to listen as you read.)
I’ve received some very sweet requests to share the story of my engagement. This wasn’t something I was planning to do because the day was so special, and just for Chase and I, but I share so much of my life with you all- why not this too?
Also, selfishly, I don’t want to forget the details. I want to remember every moment, word and smile that passed between us on that day. What a beautiful platform to both share and remember.
On April 23rd, 2017 Chase asked if I wanted to go on hike to High Knob Fire Tower. This place was significant for a few reasons: it’s where we had our first date, where we talked and talked and decided we cared for one another and wanted to give this thing a try, and it’s right on the border of both Virginia and West Virginia our two states.
When Chase asked me to go I thought nothing of it. We always go hiking or camping or walking and I assumed this day would be no different. We packed our water bottles and our lunch, kissed the pups and headed out the door.
