We’re Engaged!!!

July 27, 2008 - 2:53 pm 2 Comments

After many rumors and two family reunions, Jared proposed to me.

This afternoon we packed a small pack with some water and snacks and started up the trail to Summit Park Peak. This is the highest point in the area with a wonderful 360 degree view of the mountains and the Salt Lake. It was a great temperature for a hike… not to hot for a native northwesterner like myself.

We arrived at the top and stopped to catch our breath and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Once I was comfortable Jared dropped to his knees in front of me and asked me to marry him. I responded “I would love to marry you!” He then presented me with a temporary ring so that I could choose the actual ring.

We continued to sit and enjoy the moment until an approaching thunderstorm forced us to head down the mountain.

Note From Jared:  Check out that ring!  It is the best $14 I have ever spent!

    Hi Erika,
    I just wanted to congratulate you myself. Debbie had the website up and you look so happy. Jared looks like a great guy. Debbie felt really bad about not making it to Park City. She really thinks a lot of you.I have been a burden for the last couple of months. I blew my knee completely out in a YMs, YWs ultimate frisbee game of all things and then landed in the hospital for a week after surgery with blood clots in both lungs. Anyway, she has been taking care of me just as I’m sure you will be with Jared. 🙂 We love you and we are so happy for you. I couldn’t resist leaving this. You two look so good together!
    Lots of love, Charlie
