Since it is the month of love, what better story to tell than my own engagement story. Let’s just say it didn’t go quite as planned…
It was a beautiful April morning and Chad decided that we should go rock climbing. I agreed and we set out to conquer the 450′ tall Independence Monument.
There were 4 pitches to climb and we made it to the top fairly easily. Just another fun day rock climbing!
Once we were at the top we enjoyed the views for a few moments before Chad got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was a little shocked and mortified that my hands were covered in chalk dust. I of course said “YES!” and then Chad proceeded to pull out a small bottle of sparkling apple cider from his backpack. We wrote our romantic story in the trail registry book that sits on top of the rock. We celebrated for a few moments and then realized the sun was starting to set so we better get a move on.
