Ben asked me to marry him on January 2nd at Chena Hot Springs. I couldn't have thought of a better place. He plopped me on a rock and asked "Will you marry me?" I said "What? You're not on your knee!" He got down on his knee in the water (he's a tall guy so his head and chest wasn't submerged) and asked me again. I said "Yes!" The wedding is planned for July 28th in Michigan, so both of our families will be able to attend. We'll have a Bethel party when we get back in August too for all of our Bethel friends and family.
My friend Alisha and I went into Anchorage this past weekend to go dress shopping. I found "The One." Already ordered and sent off to Michigan. I won't see it again until July when I fly back home. My friend Jess, Matron of Honor, will be safe keeping The Dress for me.
