Over the course of our relationship Matthew and I have hiked countless different trails, but Maryland Heights, has always been our favorite. The first time we ever hiked the trail, was our very first date, which we often dispute if it was even a date at all, or just an outing as friends. The second time we hiked this trail, we had been together for one year, and once we made it to the top it began to thunderstorm, despite the weather, it became one of the most enjoyable hikes we had ever been on. On October 6, 2017, Matthew and I agreed to take a break from the stresses of work and school and to once again hike up to our favorite location. For me, I was not in the mood to make the journey, but with the constant encouragement from Matthew we finally made it to the top, and it was definitely worth it. It was there, that Matthew asked me to marry him and spend the rest of our lives together. It wasn’t until after the fact that I realized the entire proposal was photographed, which made it even more perfect than it already was!
I cannot thank The Jewelry Shop enough for making the absolute perfect ring for us. It will always be a constant reminder of that very special day and the love I have for Matthew. It will definitely be cherished for the many years to come!
