While working as a nursing assistant at Catskill Regional, I met a nurse who said her boyfriend at the time had a single friend that she wanted me to meet. She said he would be at the upcoming Florida Georgia Line concert at Bethel Woods. I last minute bought tickets that day and went with my brother and his friend. Part way into the concert, I texted the nurse to see where she was at so I could meet this guy. I was thinking the whole time "this guy is going to be ugly..." When I saw Zach I thought, okay he's good looking. He must have thought the same because a few dates later and we were exclusive!
One of Zach and I's favorite hiking trails is Slide Mountain. During one of our hikes early on in our relationship, he carved our initials into a tree.
When he proposed, I remember it being October and thinking this is probably going to be one of our last hikes for the year before it gets too cold. I went up to check out our initials and when I turned around there he was with the ring!
