Keenan said that he had to do some work on the peak chair after hours and asked if my sister, Ariel and I wanted to go with him to take some photos of the views and wander around. He had done work up there before and this didn’t seem odd. Clearly, I didn’t think anything was planned as I put no effort into getting ready – take note of the awful messy bun! it was incredibly windy up there and I couldn’t keep my hair out of my face.
Once we got to the peak Keenan walked out onto a rock overlooking black tusk and I followed snapping photos of the view and then I could feel maybe something was happening as he awkwardly mumbled some words and stood close to me. I turned around and we awkwardly stood there for a minute until he got down on one knee. He pulled out a box that he had given to me as a gift for Christmas however many years ago, I was possibly 15 and at that time there was my birthstone in it. Now years later he presented me that very box now with my dream ring instead of the birthstone and asked me to spend forever with him.
My sister captured it all on video and we hung around watching the sunset and drinking champaign. My sister, Ariel got to third wheel the whole thing – if you know us it’s not unusual she was there!
