Anna Maria Locke

a spring engagement story


This post is getting to be long overdue!
I thought that life was going to calm down a little bit after I finished the thesis....
Little did I know that the excitement and craziness was just beginning.

I turned 24 on April 26th. It was one of the first legitimately warm, sunny days of spring so Ben and I went on a birthday hike. We walked along a ridge line until we came to a huge overlook, where he knelt on the rocky trail and asked me to marry him with his grandmother's ring.
I am still getting used to not having a "boyfriend" anymore, after four and a half amazing years.
And I am so excited to marry my best friend and the love of my life!
