Achievement Unlocked: Get Engaged

On April 11th Michael and I revisited the Ink Pots, and in true hiker fashion, this was the place he chose to get down on one knee and propose! We hadn’t been back since our first ever backpacking trip, so it was a lovely surprise, even if the day was a bit cold. After I said yes, we toasted the occasion with prosecco and clif bars and then hiked back down the mountain.

Ring 2


I adore my ring, especially the peridot stone (we both love the color green, naturally) and while I am pretty excited about the whole thing, I promise this place won’t suddenly become a wedding blog 😉
