KHAK’s Danielle Gets Engaged! [PHOTOS]
I’M ENGAGED! (as you probably know). I was on vacation all last week with my (then) boyfriend Josh and our dog Mira. We traveled to the beautiful lands of Colorado and Utah where he popped the question! Needless to say I was very surprised. Here’s how everything unfolded.
We arrived in Moab, Utah which is a gorgeous area surrounded by red canyons. We spent the first couple of days camping and driving Jeep trails. We even canoed on the Colorado river! Let me start off by telling you that at this point we had three cameras, then soon realized we didn’t have the correct memory card for one–leaving us down to two. Shortly into our canoe trip, we saw a bear on one of the river banks. As we got out the GoPro to get video of the bear, we soon realized it was dead (thanks to me not turning it off previously). Whoops! Down to one camera. Josh was a little bothered by this, which at the time I didn’t understand because I figured at least we still had one left.
The next day, we took off on a Jeep trail called ‘Top of the World’. It’s a little sketchy going up considering there are rock ledges and boulders you have to drive over. But, it’s a lot of fun and once you get to the top it literally feels like you’re on top of the world. You can see for miles into the canyons and even see parts of Colorado! It’s beautiful.
While at the top, we had the area to ourselves. I went to the edge of the cliff (which is also sketchy) where we were going to take a picture. Josh put the camera we had left on a 20 second self timer and was going to run over to me for the picture. I was looking out into the vastness of our surroundings when he started the timer and ran over to me. I had just heard him come up behind me when he told me to turn around. When I did, there he was on one knee, ring in hand (and barefoot to prevent tripping on sandals while running lol). I was extremely surprised. It took me a minute to catch my breath and reply “Yes!”, as I was a little emotional. It was the perfect moment with the perfect man. And luckily, SOMEHOW the picture timed out perfectly to capture that moment. I guess I can see now why he was wanting multiple cameras… Here are some photos from the trip, and of course the proposal.
What’s your engagement story? Did you have the perfect proposal or did it not go as planned? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear your stories!
