Bryce and I met in Paramedic school and so we didn’t have a lot of free time. I moved to Portland from Bellingham, Washington and was seriously missing the trails and outdoors activities I used to have at my fingertips. In Portland with the combination of my crazy schedule and outdoor activities and trails being a little farther away, I was missing my hiking and running pretty bad. On 8/29 Bryce surprised me by calling into my job and getting my shift covered for me so we could go hiking. Granted, Multnomah Falls isn’t necessarily an intense hike, but we went there with the idea to spend the day exploring and just enjoying some fresh air. At the top of the falls, Bryce pretended to tie his shoe and surprised me with a proposal! Afterwards, we went and ate an amazing lunch at the lodge and just spent the rest of the day relaxing and just enjoying being together.
