Q + A WITH LENA AND DAVID
Q. HOW DID YOU GUYS MEET?
A. David and I met on a blind date set up by his sister and my aunt, whom are childhood friends. Big props to Cindy and Tanya! Wooo wooo! Our first meeting was a snowboarding trip to the local mountains, with David’s friends. None of his friends had any clue I was his guest! =)
Q. HOW LONG DID YOU DATE BEFORE YOU GOT ENGAGED AND HOW LONG WERE YOU ENGAGED FOR?
A. A loooonngg time! 6 1/2 years we’ve been dating and engaged for 7 months.
Q. WHAT WAS THE STORY OF THE PROPOSAL?
A. It was the day after Christmas and we wanted to go snowboarding since there was supposedly some fresh snow in the local mountains, so we planned a trip to go just the two of us. Woke up early and David checked the snow report. No chain required, so we were all good. Picked up some McD’s for breakfast and then as we approached the bottom of the mountain, people starting turning around because they wouldn’t let people up without chains. We didn’t have any, so David thought maybe we should just head back home. We turned around and 10 minutes later, he decided we should go for it, so we turned around to stop by a place to buy chains. An hour passed and we couldn’t find chains that fit the tires, but then we heard they started letting people up the mountain without chains. Finally got to the mountains and went through our first run. David found a good spot. Got down on one knee and popped the question. That was definitely worth the trouble!
