How we met...
Kevin and I met in September 2008. He gave up a hurried life in Washington D.C. and set out west on his motorcycle in search of mountains. A couple months later, he met me!
We met at a tennis meetup that was scheduled through Meetup.com. I had been going for a couple of months, and it was his first time there. We played against each other for a while, and then ended up playing doubles together. He thought it was cute to hear me mumbling my little curses whenever I missed a shot... so he says it was "love at first curse".
It started out as an ordinary day... we ran a lot of errands and drove all the way up to Castlerock to get him some shirts. On the way back down, we stopped at Garden of the Gods to go for a walk. I took him up this trail to a spot overlooking the whole park. That's when he got down on his knee and pulled out a ring box. He opened it up and it was empty! He was like "Oh my God, what happened to it?? I must have dropped it!" I wasn't buying it because I knew he would never do that, so he gave up his ruse and pulled out another ring box and asked me to marry him.
I was all teary-eyed, and then a minute later, this girl and her father came around the corner, and she saw me all teary and she said "Did you just propose??" She was all excited because she had been proposed to just a couple weeks before, so she took a picture of us with her camera and then one with Kevin's phone.
