Our first and absolutely favorite hiking spot in the black hills is Stratobowl. That is where we had one of our first dates when we first met. On the day that he proposed we were going to go to Hill City for some wine tasting. Then we decided to go on a short hike. I had noticed that he was taking a lot longer to pack his backpack than normal before we left that day. Once we got to our favorite spot that over looked the clearing of trees we took some pictures together and then he asked me to turn around. While this is going on I start to get suspicious and ask a lot of questions. He is behind me fumbling with his bag trying to get the ring and set up his phone so he can take a video. This was the real moment when I knew something fishy was going on, but I continued to stay put. He gets on one knee behind me and tells me to turn around where he asks me “Deidra Drageset will you marry me?” And of course I said yes! The funny part of this story happens after he proposes. He also got this on camera as well. So we had to edit it when we posted it to social media. Its not appropriate for this so if you happen to see me around ask me about it. Otherwise if you don't know me just assume I asked him how nervous he was to pop the question. Nick tells this story a lot better than I do and I am sure he will tell me that as soon as this is posted.

How They Met

We met online at the end of our freshman year of college. Our first date was at Starbucks. I'm 4'11” and he is 6'3” so initially I didn't want to get up from my chair to greet him because I knew there was going to be a major height difference. It was like this the whole date and I made him leave first when we were both ready to go. We sat and talked at that Starbucks for probably three hours before we both realized we had places to be.
