“Um, Alicia you are beautiful and Chris is so handsome…you two would make a GREAT couple!” This was how Alicia and Chris met. Awkward, but Chris seemed to agree as he came back the next day to try to get to know Alicia. She was too busy though working for the therapeutic riding ranch, so he left without getting to talk to her. And that was the end of it…or so she thought! Chris did not give up. He got her email address from a mutual friend and started spending time with her and her family. Alicia says it sounds like a cheesy novel, but so began a beautiful relationship.
Ten months later they were sitting on the edge of a cliff resting after a run. Alicia thought it would be a perfect place to be proposed to, but didn’t give it a second thought. As they stood to go back, she turned to him and started telling him of another couple she had heard about who went out on a hike. The guy surprised his girlfriend by proposing once they reached the top of the mountain. She was so shocked that she took a step back, lost her balance, fell off the side of the mountain, and had to be life flighted out to the hospital. As Alicia finished the story, Chris asked her “you won’t do that to me right?” and went down on one knee to propose! Cheesy or not, so began the rest of their life together.
